“The Seasons in Quincy” is five years in the making and is composed of four episodic shorts. The films attempt to inform the audience about Berger’s life while also presenting the material in a style similar to that of his works and literature. Berger is best known for his experimental novel “G.” which won the 1972 Booker Prize as well as the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, but he is also well known for his literary criticism, plays and screenplays.

The series is set to be released on DVD and VOD on December 6. It will also be available for digital purchase and rental on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play and Vudu. The DVD includes 16-page booklet featuring essays and art by and about John Berger.
