Here and there in France, Agnès Varda has come across gleaners, foragers, rummagers and scavengers. Through necessity, purely by chance or out of choice these people pick up left-over items discarded by others. Their world is a surprising one. It is a far cry from the world of yesterday’s gleaners, peasant women who rummaged for bits of wheat left after the harvest. Potatoes, apples and other discarded foodstuffs, things without owners, clocks without hands are the fare of today’s gleaners.
