In Harvest Tilda Swinton revisits Berger with her own children, on a journey from one mountain range to another as they travel from the Scottish highlands to Quincy, where John’s son Yves still lives, paints and farms. While there are visual echoes of all of the first three films, Harvest is primarily a response, and companion, to Ways of Listening. From winter to summer, from fathers to children, John’s home is explored through the eyes of a new generation. Visually rich, with a groundbreaking soundtrack created by Simon Fisher Turner from his own recordings and interventions on the journey, Swinton’s film completes the sequence.
