Hope's Harvest RI "The Gleaners and I" Film Screening
February 29, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
The Gleaners and I, a film by acclaimed French filmmaker Agnes Varda, documents various types of gleaners – in fields, cities, and junkyards – as they recover food and other found objects. Named one of the BBC’s 100 greatest films of the 21st Century, The Gleaners and I offers a unique window into the ancient practice of gleaning and how it manifests in all aspects of life.
The screening, hosted by the AS220 Main Stage and Gallery, will be followed by discussion and Q&A about Hope’s Harvest RI and how we contribute to the Rhode Island food system by addressing issues of wasted food and food insecurity. Q&A will be lead by Eva Agudelo, Founding Director of Hope’s Harvest RI, Rhode Island’s first farm-based gleaning organization.
This is a free event. Optional donations will be accepted at the door to support the work of Hope’s Harvest RI – you can learn more about the organization and sign up to get involved at: http://hopesharvest.org.
