4/25: The Gleaners and I (WED)
23 Apr 2007
The Gleaners and I
Free Screening

Wednesday, April 25
7pm


The film tracks a series of gleaners as they hunt for food, knicknacks, and personal connection. Varda travels French countryside and city to find and film not only field gleaners, but also urban gleaners and those connected to gleaners, including a wealthy restaurant owner whose ancestors were gleaners. The film spends time capturing the many aspects of gleaning and the many people who glean to survive. It touches on things such as the teacher named Alain who is an urban gleaner who has a master's degree. He teaches immigrants. Varda's other subjects include artists who incorporate recycled materials into their work, symbols she discovers during her filming (including a clock without hands and a heart-shaped potato), and the French law regarding gleaning.

Upcoming Films:

May 2 - Manufactured Landscapes

Edward Burtynsky is internationally acclaimed for his large-scale photographs of nature transformed by industry. Manufactured Landscapes – a stunning documentary by award winning director Jennifer Baichwal – follows Burtynsky to China, as he captures the effects of the country’s massive industrial revolution. This remarkable film leads us to meditate on human endeavour and its impact on the planet.

90 min. 2006.


May 9 - Nomads and No-Zones

Drawn from the raw material of their drifts and detours, here's an album of radical diaries and personal documentaries from two of the West's bravest makers. Gritty glimpses of edgy experience in marginalized cultures, their authentic film stories afford rare access and insight into the lived poetry of a dozen-plus autonomous zones.

A road-savvy Snider freight-hops her way up and down the Coast, tracking from Frisco punk rockers to apocalyptic messengers of the Sonoran desert, gambling and engaging with the losers and visionaries that she meets along the way. Criss-crossing her paths are the barefoot pilgrimages of Portand-based Renwick, whose wise eye and wild heart celebrate the secret meanings of animals and humble things, the agonies and ecstasies of outsider life.

91 min. 2004.
