Since 1973, the revered British art critic and writer John Berger has lived in the Alpine Village of Quincy. In this unique documentary journey, Berger’s close friends, including Colin MacCabe and Tilda Swinton, collaborate on four very different film essays, interweaving ideas from the artist’s life’s work with the atmosphere of his mountain setting. Conceived as “exercises in thinking in film”, presented together in this feature film they offer up an appropriately innovative portrait of an intellectual giant.
