Film Screening, Movies


John Berger’s TV mini-series and book, "Ways of Seeing," completely refocused perceptions of art and visual culture in the late 20th century.
The four episodes that make up the film The Seasons in Quincy find renowned filmmakers Bartek Dziadosz, Colin MacCabe, Christopher Roth, and Tilda Swinton in deep conversation with Berger in the Swiss village of Quincy, which Berger calls home. This remarkable and engaging documentary vividly captures details of life in the village, and brings the themes and ideas of Ways of Seeing to bear on life and art in the 21st century.
