In the “essay film” the self becomes the basis of an account of the wider world. Discuss this statement in relation to a close analysis of The Gleaners and I.

Introduction:
- Talk a little bit about what is documentary film (touch upon Grierson) and how it`s different to essay film. What are the differences/ similarities? Then talk about Agnes Varda and her background: her relation to the French New Wave, etc, Then argue that you will explore the concept of `self` in her film "Gleaners and I".

1st paragraph:
Explain BRIEFLY what`s going on in the film. What`s the main theme or topic? Mention about modes: interactive, performative and poetic. Why does her film fall into all categories and why it is hard to say that her film belongs to one specific mode. 

2nd paragraph:
Argue that it is self-reflexive essay film through the examples of potato scene, clock scene and the first scene where she stands near the huge painting. (I will attach specific readings that discuss these scenes in details, incorporate them and go beyond, affording your own explanation or you may critique their explanation, but mention why do you think differently?)
Note: you need to perform close textual analysis to the scenes but be aware do not just repeat word to word from the scholars ( i will attach the articles). 

3rd paragraph:
Use Caroline Porter`s article to build a final and major argument upon `subjectivity` (human-non-human). How does Varda approach it? Why does it important? Why her film is so complex and deep? + use Forceville`s article and discuss it in terms of the perception of the world, how does she module/create it? 

Conclusion:
Based on all arguments say about Varda`s worldview. What is she trying to say through her films (not only Gleaners)? Why do you think she could reveal her ideas specifically through the essay film form?
