Sébastien Chabot’s film reflects on the meaning of gardening and its impact on our lives through the perspective of horticulturalist Frank Cabot of Les Quatres Vents, his 20-acre English style garden and summer estate in Quebec. In interviews filmed shortly before Cabot’s passing in 2011 at the age of 86, we hear about his personal quest for perfection as he created an enchanted place of beauty and surprise. Through the words of Cabot and his family, and with the participation of gardening experts and writers, the film looks back at this remarkable man’s personal story and the artistic philosophy that gave birth to a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century. Director: Sébastien Chabot. (Canada 2016) 88 min.
