Event description

Description

Presented by the Wolf Humanities Center and the Cinema and Media Studies Program in collaboration with Lightbox Film Center at International House Philadelphia.

The Gleaners and I / Les Glaneurs et la Glaneuse
(dir. Agnès Varda, 2000, 82 min.)

What counts as trash and for whom? Varda's handheld camera shifts its attention between abandoned objects and the community of human beings who survive, and often thrive, on trash. Gleaning, Varda reveals, can also be the stuff of artists and filmmakers with their parasitically productive acts of subversion and rejection of authority.

Film to be followed by conversation.



Working Through Matter is a program of the Wolf Humanities Center's 2018-19 Forum on Stuff. Screenings are free and open to the public.
