Movie Synopsis:

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 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 that comprise The Seasons in Quincy 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 multi-faceted and multi-layered portrait of an extraordinary human being.
