Description:

Sébastien Chabot’s documentary pays tribute to the life and work of Frank Cabot, who planted a stunning English-style garden called Les Quatre Vents on 20 acres of his family’s land in Charlevoix, Quebec, not far from Quebec City.

Sprawled across the top of Mount Murray, the garden aligns the transformative power of nature and the ingenuity of human design to reach unbelievable heights. Lovers of gardening and topiary will be awe-inspired by Cabot's vision, captured on film for the very first time.  Since the garden is only open to the public a few days a year, the film offers people the opportunity to experience a stunning place that only a lucky few have had a chance to see.
