John Berger was one of the most revered writers and broadcasters of the 20th century. The author of many groundbreaking works, including Ways Of Seeing, A Seventh Man and Pig Earth, he has touched the lives of millions, across multiple generations, with his fascinating worldview.

The Seasons In Quincy: Four Portraits Of John Berger is the result of a five-year project by Tilda Swinton and Colin MacCabe to produce a portrait of this fascinating figure and celebrate his ideas, his art and the man himself. The four essay films combine different aspects of Berger’s life in the Haute-Savoie with ideas and motifs from his work amid the reflective atmosphere of his mountain home. Each film was created as an individual work of art but viewed together form a beautifully paced and meditative feature-length documentary that demonstrates how film can move beyond text and art to offer a multifaceted and multilayered portrait of an extraordinary human being.
