Following its release in cinemas, there have been hundreds of organized screenings of Five Seasons. These events have helped galvanize urban planning, community-building, and environmental initiatives, as well as to simply feed the joy of garden, art and design lovers around the world.

The coronavirus pandemic has temporarily deprived us of these communal gatherings. But we believe the need to virtually recreate those experiences is even more vital. We have designed a simple platform to encourage collective streaming of the film that also invites a range of interactive engagement, from chat-based Q&A’s to live teleconference panel discussions, as well as tailored Calls to Action.

While we also pursue arrangements to eventually make the film available for individual home viewing, we sincerely hope these virtual community screenings can be a valuable and engaging way to bridge the distance the pandemic has put between us.

“Plants are characters I compose with and I put them on the stage. Tom was able to bring these characters to life in perfect harmony, from Oudolf Field in Somerset, to Manhattan’s High Line gardens and desert wildflowers in West Texas. This documentary shows my working process and holistic approach to landscape design like never before. I hope that watching Tom’s film is restorative at this time, and an opportunity to enjoy nature as we observe the turning of seasons that surrounds us all.”
