Summary (the gleaners and I)
As she travels the length and breadth of her native France, the director AgnÃ¨s Varda makes a personal study of those who collect things which other people have discarded or abandoned, â€œles glaneursâ€. This includes those who, through economic necessity or for pleasure, gather vegetables and fruit left behind after the main harvest, where the term â€œglaneurâ€ originated. It also includes those who gather bric-a-brac and those who scour rubbish bins and the waste left after a market for morsels of food. All of these people are united in a single shared purpose: to gather and live off a valuable resource which our modern consumer society shuns.
