THE GLEANERS & I aka Les glaneurs et la glaneuse d. Agnès Varda, 2000 + Intro presented by No Planet B at Catford Mews (01 JUL 20:15).

  • “In this idiosyncratic, self-reflexive documentary, Varda explores the world of modern-day gleaners: those living on the margins who survive by foraging and scavenging for what society throws away. Varda likens her filmmaking to the gleaning of ideas and images from interior and exterior journeys and admits to being a gleaner herself, which gives her a special connection with the subjects of this honest and intriguing documentary.”
  • No Planet B is an environmental film club inspiring activism through cinema.
