Storyline

John Berger and Tilda Swinton have been friends for decades. Their affinity is based upon a complicity of perception and a propensity for reflection, as well as the fact that they share a birthday. This compelling sequence of moments from a weekend spent together at John's home documents their rapport. Between cooking, sketching, shovelling snow and contemplating art, they converse about some of the themes that preoccupy them both - truth and silence, memory and transmitted experience. Besides constituting a new portrait of John Berger, this film prompts us to consider the spaces between the lines, the silences of history, and the pauses to take stock in a conversation. In other words, ways of listening. Written by Lily Ford
