Digital Filmmaking as Gleaning

by Kate Fortmueller

The Gleaners and I, Agnes Varda's essay film and first foray into digital filmmaking, depicts various types of gleaning. In this sequence, featured early in the film, she introduces three of the key recurring themes: gleaning, filmmaking, and aging. How does she transition from the historical understanding of gleaning to her personal and more contemporary version of gleaning? How do you understand her ideas about aging in connection with gleaning?
