Agnes Varda

Gatherers and gatherer / Les glaneurs et la glaneuse, 2000 / Documentary /

Series of essays rhythmically one after the other; in the center of each - collectors, each of them picks up what turned out to left, abandoned and unnecessary.

Agnes herself here as a collector of facts and stories, traveling with a small digital camera and talking with people about what they collect and why. Someone picks up the potatoes in a field that does not fit into the EU standards in size and shape, and therefore the "human" and touching story with potato found in the shape of a heart, and someone picks up unsold apples and bread in the market, which discharges bakery, another sorry abandoned toys and it has no connection with poverty or inability to change; contrary, this way of life - their choice and the ability to see what lies abandonment and just; the ability to pick up and find applications. Agnes, in turn, deliberately uses the footage that any other would just threw and puts them in the center, the focus makes sense.
