Three very different documentaries feature British art critic and poet, John Berger (1926-2017). Working on an astonishing range of topics and art-forms, his groundbreaking insights on seeing shaped the public for decades.
Realized as a portrait in works and collaborations, JOHN BERGER OR THE ART OF LOOKING takes a different approach to biography, where for his 90th birthday, Berger leads us in his favorite role as a story teller through his ways of seeing today. Less biographical, THE SEASONS IN QUINCY is a 4-part film where friends like Tilda Swinton join him at his home for engaging conversations. In THE SPECTRE OF HOPE, photographer Sebastião Salgado joins Berger to pore over Salgado's heartbreaking collection, 'Migrations.'
Together, these films provide a fascinating insight into Berger and his work.
