“A marvelous nonfiction collage of those who scavenge and salvage in France, the ‘I’ of the title is a vital, inquisitive force.”
The Village Voice

The film that best embodies Agnès Varda’s late-career metamorphosis into a philosophizing video diarist, armed with extremely-portable equipment and a towering curiosity. Here, she takes us into the lives of those who live on the edge of society, “gleaning” a living from the junk of others. In a 2014 Sight & Sound poll of the best documentaries of all time it ranked eighth, the highest entry directed by a woman.
