The Gleaning Truths Touring Programme presents brand new digital restorations of eight of Agnès Varda's best-known films. Agnès Varda is a seminal feminist filmmaker and matriarch of French Cinema. Gleaning Truths is brought to audiences with the support of the BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery.
The body of a woman is found in a ditch in the French countryside - but what led to the death of this young and defiant drifter?
In one of Agnès Varda's more provocative films, she presents us with the dilemma faced by husband and father Francois (Jean-Claude Drouot) who finds himself falling in love with an attractive postal worker.
