Directed by Agnès Varda | 2000

Agnès Varda entered the extraordinarily rich final phase of her legendary career with this casually brilliant documentary-cum-self portrait. As she travels the countryside profiling an eclectic array of gleaners—those living on the margins of French society who scavenge for its leftovers—she frames herself as a cinematic gleaner, someone who collects images and moments few would think to pay attention to. The result is a witty, idiosyncratic, and disarmingly profound meditation on the meaning of value in a world of disposable consumerism.

“In Highland Ranches, Colorado, my retired father and his buddy Bob walk six-miles of sprawl along an 8 lane highway. They collect the coins left behind under the take-out windows and then hit the car wash to dig out change the vacuum cleaners have sucked up and deposited into cans…My dad, Varda’s gleaners, [First Cow characters] Cookie and King-Lu – are all people making the most of the environments they find themselves in.”

—Kelly Reichardt
