Time Is Away - John Berger: Pig Earth

London, 24.01.22

In 1974, John Berger moved to the remote peasant community of Quincy in the Haute-Savoie. There he worked in the fields and immersed himself in village life. These experiences formed the basis of Pig Earth, a book and documentary film made in collaboration with Jean Mohr and Mike Dibb. This programme uses Pig Earth to take a peasant’s-eye view of rapid social, economic and environmental change in the early 1980s. Reflecting the harsh realities of peasant life, it contains some descriptions which listeners may find disturbing.
