Les glaneurs et la glaneuse

Les glaneurs et la glaneuse

Agnès Varda

France, 2000, 82 min., French


The dictionary and the painting The Gleaners by Millet are the starting points for this multifaceted essay where Agnès Varda intermingles thoughts linked to, above all, wastage in supposedly welfare societies. While she traces the survival of these practices (gleaning, clustering) and verifies and assesses their mutations in the context of capitalism development (rummaging, recycling, redistributing), the filmmaker sets up a deep, perceptive reflection on the passage of time both in her and in her art technology. It is in the new digital order where she finds, in a surprisingly natural manner, the medium which with turn herself into a gleaner of images who handles a camera with one hand to film the other one, checking that death works in silence.
