This delightful documentary is really a self portrait of Varda, finding her fully embracing the freedom of digital video to craft a personal, political, and casually profound celebration of “gleaners”: those living on the margins of French society who scavenge for its leftovers. Taking everything from surplus in the fields, to rubbish in trashcans, to oysters washed up after a storm, the gleaners range from those sadly in need to those, as is the case of the filmmaker herself, simply seeking beauty in the world.
