    Prolific artist, philosopher, writer, storyteller and "radical humanist" John Berger is the focus of Tilda Swinton’s vivid four-part cinematic portrait. In 1973, he moved from urban London to the tiny Alpine village of Quincy. THE SEASONS IN QUINCY: FOUR PORTRAITS OF JOHN BERGER examines different aspects of Berger's life in this remote village in the Alps. In four seasonal chapters, the film combines ideas and motifs from his work with the texture and history of his mountain home. A terrific insight into the creative process: perfect for our Arts In Film section.
