The Seasons in Quincy: Four Portraits of John Berger Dirigida por Bartek Dziadosz, Colin MacCabe, Christopher Roth, Tilda Swinton
This is a film that celebrates the exchange of ideas, creating a microcosm for independent thought that is every bit as fertile as the fecund mountain farmlands where Berger made his home. But for all the radical political treatises, there is a sense of peace here also – nowhere better shown than in a lovely scene in which Berger and Tilda Swinton sit, perfectly at ease, making a pie and chatting about dads.

How best to cover the life and times of one of Britain’s foremost poetic thinkers, John Berger, on film? Give him the linear This Is Your Life treatment, with fawning endorsements from friends and family? Stick to a single, salient episode and go into minute detail? Or maybe opt for something a little more kooky and conceptual? The Seasons in Quincy goes for a little bit of all three routes, offering more remedial material for Berger newbies and a some deep-dive stuff for the superfans.

It seems unlikely, but there are several sections in the third “portrait” (MacCabe’s), that make you wonder whether the whole thing is an elaborate joke… This would fix in a satiric framework Berger’s idealization of the “peasant,” his refusal to see that his humble hideaway in a privileged utopia is available only to the one percent he derides… But that would be to credit those involved with a great deal more self-awareness than seems available.
