Post film discussion with Alison Lewis and Trevor Kimball, Landscape Designers for IBI Group.

Can a garden be art? Can a gardener be an artist? Through poetic cinematography and intimate conversation, Five Seasons illuminates how Piet Oudolf, designer of New York’s High Line and other celebrated public spaces, has radically changed ideas about garden and landscape design and elevated himself to the highest echelons of contemporary art. An experiential portrait of a difficult and complex creative mind, Piet leads filmmaker Thomas Piper on a wandering journey across five seasons, visiting his iconic works as well as far-flung sources of inspiration, forever changing the way we see, and think about, beauty.
