    Subject: The Gleaners
    Date: Aug 21, 2002
    Sender: AndyPrevious

    It reminded me of another film, "Dark Days" about the homeless who built structures in abandoned New York subway tunnels. These homeless also retained their dignity despite their apparantly desperate surroundings. It was a beautiful thing to see people "living on the edge" and succeeding.
    Humankind once lived as hunters and gatherers. I
    believe that these images of gleaners resonate with our ancestral memories of survival.
    It was also a delight to hear uniquely French descriptive phrases and ways of thinking. The final image of the painting viewed in natural light on a windy day similar to the one painted was brillantly evocative.

    Editor's note: We reviewed "Dark Days" in 2000. Click here to see the review.
