A collaborative effort by the Derek Jarman Film Lab, these four shorts examine the life and work of the English writer, painter, and art critic John Berger. The first, Colin MacCabe’s “Ways of Listening,” is the most evocative: actor Tilda Swinton, a longtime friend and creative partner to Berger, visits him at his Alpine village home during Christmastime, and they warmly swap insights into art. Christopher Roth’s “Spring” is affected and thus less affecting, and MacCabe and Bartek Dziadosz’s “A Song for Politics” awkwardly disconnects from the seasonal theme. The autumnal fourth film, directed by Swinton and fittingly titled “Harvest,” returns to the easy eloquence of the first and concludes the collection on a joyful note. This might have worked better as a more cohesive documentary.
