At the age of 86 and shortly before his passing, Frank Cabot - influential gardener, horticulturalist, philanthropist and founder of the Garden Conservancy - opened his personal garden, Les Quatre Vents in Quebec, to a film crew for the first time.

This visually stunning film captures Cabot’s extraordinary twenty-acre garden, rich with plant species and gardening-style influences curated during his world travels. It reveals his quest to create what is widely considered to be a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century, and his innovative work to permanently protect other historically significant private gardens. Directed by Sébastien Chabot. 2017, Canada, 87 mins.


CRANBERRY LAKE (PWN premiere!):  Forest ecology students at the Cranberry Lake Biological Station, a remote research station in the Adirondacks, lead us through an immersive meditation on experiential learning as a way to arouse relationships between humans and nature. Directed by Zoya Baker. 2017, US,  17 mins.
