The Gleaners and I (France, 2000)

Maru a Pula School, AV Centre

Agnès Varda's universally acclaimed "wandering-road documentary" focuses her ever-seeking eye on gleaners: those who scour already-reaped fields for the odd potato or turnip. Her investigation leads us from forgotten corners of the French countryside to off-hours at the green markets of Paris.  This was voted the best documentary of 2001 by the National Society of Film Critics.
