The Seasons in Quincy (2016)
The Seasons in Quincy is the result of a five-year project by Tilda Swinton, Colin MacCabe and Christopher Roth to produce a portrait of the intellectual and storyteller John Berger. A sequence of four essay films, it places Berger in the rhythm of the seasons in his Alpine village of Quincy.
The Seasons is the Lab’s first feature length film, which premiered at Berlin in February 2016, and is currently screening around the world. It has a UK and Ireland theatrical release with Curzon Artificial Eye on June 23rd 2017 with a DVD to follow in August. Visit the Seasons website for more information and the Curzon website for details about upcoming screenings.
