Did you know? Canada is home to one of North America’s most spectacular private gardens. We’ve written twice about Les Quatre Vents, near La Malbaie, Quebec (here and here) and at last I have an excuse to write about it again.
Because it, and its creator Francis Cabot, is now the subject of a feature documentary, The Gardener, playing May 18 to 31, 2017 at the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema on Bloor. And we’ve been given eight (that’s 8!) pairs of tickets to give away for the Saturday, May 20th, 4 pm showing. Our winners can pick theirs up at the box office on the day of the show. Wondering if the film is as good as the garden? Read this review.
I’m a long-time Doc Soup subscriber with Hot Docs and I’m madly in love with this garden. So we were happy to play along. If you can be in Toronto on May 20, you can play along, too. Leave a comment and we’ll draw eight names, a week from today on the evening of May 17th, and contact you by email.
To put you in the mood, here’s a peek at one of the garden’s many features. Cursor over images to read captions. Then click any image for the larger slideshow.
