The Seasons in Quincy is the result of a five-year project to produce a portrait of the intellectual and storyteller John Berger. It was produced by the Derek Jarman Lab, an audio-visual hub for graduate filmmaking based at Birkbeck, University of London

Walter Stabb, Head of Post-Production at the Derek Jarman Lab, managed the post-production of Ways of Listening, Spring and A Song for Politics, as well as recording sound for Ways of Listening and A Song for Politics.

This was a project that sought to 'think in film' and represents an exploration of editing practice as analysis in the essay film form. The film engages with Berger's intellectual thought and writing through the audio visual medium of film. The project involved student workshops, collaboration with experts in the field.

The film world premiered at the Berlin Film Festival, the UK premiere was at Sheffield Doc Fest. It has screened at The National Portrait Gallery and numerous global festivals. It has had a cinema run in the USA and is on DVD release in the USA.
