Outdoor Movie Series: The Gleaners and I
278 Sligo Road, Rollinsford, NH
Saturday, July 2, 2011
The Gleaners and I is a 2001 French documentary which tracks the lives of gleaners. Traditionally, gleaners were peasants who scavenged cultivated fields after the harvest, but this film expands the term to include people who pick over rural and urban landscapes for both art and subsistence. It won numerous awards at its release, including Best Non-Fiction Film-2001 from the National Society of Film Critics. Our thanks go out to Zeitgeist Films for permission to screen this film. This is a free event—rain date July 3rd. Trailers and more information can be found on our website. Refreshments, including our tremendous frozen yogurt, will be available for purchase.
All films will be screened in the backyard of 278 Sligo Road, the red house between two hills about a mile south of the Farm Store, but you should park about a quarter-mile before you get to the house, at the gray tunnel barn across the street from a gray house. Bring lawn chairs, blankets, and whatever you’ll need to be comfortable at an outdoor event.
