Watch this! a "green" film about global food waste: perfectly misshaped potatoes left in the field (now the ugly food movement), edibles in high-end Parisian restaurants' trash bins, fruit left after harvest (in French, grapiller means gleaning for above-ground goodies, while glaner for what's in/on the soil). Film also extends to the gleaning for info, Art, and so much more.
Varda's latest Visages Villages (Faces Places} also a charmer.
