Modern Languages & Linguistics Film 1: Les Glaneurs et la glaneuse (The Gleaners and I) (France, Agnes Varda, 2000).

Faced with the modern Western culture of waste, filmmaker Agnès Varda decides to explore the centuries-old practice of gleaning: collecting and using what is left after the harvest. Varda's honest and empathic eye leads her across France, from fields to artists to dumpster-divers, and to inspiring discoveries.
