A film by Sebastian Chabot is a documentary about the meaning of gardening and its impact on our lives.
Shortly before his passing at age 86, influential gardener and horticulturalist Frank Cabot recounts his personal quest for perfection at Les Quatre Vents, his twenty-acre English-style garden and summer estate that was opened to a film crew for the first time in 2009.
Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Charlevoix County in Quebec, Les Quatre Vents has become one of the world’s foremost private gardens. Created over three generations, it is an enchante place of beauty and surprise, a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century.
Through the words of Cabot and his family, and with the participation of gardening experts and writers, the film looks back at this remarkable man’s personal story and the artistic philosophy that gave birth to one of the greatest gardens in the world.
