Four Seasons in Quincy

Belfast Exposed Photography partner with the Belfast Film Festival to host an evening celebrating the life of acclaimed art critic, essayist, novelist and cultural thinker John Berger who died earlier this year aged 90.

The screening will be preceded by an introduction and readings from Berger’s writing selected by prominent artists who cite Berger as a central influence.

In 1973, Berger moved from urban London to the tiny Alpine village of Quincy. This film 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.
