The award-winning film “The Gardener” offers a rare glimpse into the hidden gem in La Malbaie, Que. Philanthropist Frank Cabot opened his Jardins de Quatre-Vents to film crew shortly before his 2011 death.
This documentary captures four seasons on Frank Cabot’s eight-hectare (20-acre) English-style garden and summer estate. Nestled in the rolling hills of Quebec’s Charlevoix region, Les Jardins de Quatre-Vents is one of the world’s foremost private gardens.
The work of three generations of Boston Cabots, it is a place of beauty and surprise, a 21st-century horticultural masterpiece that was opened to a film crew for the first time for this project.
Interviewed a year before his death at the age of 86, Cabot recounts his personal quest for perfection — a balancing act in which man and nature collaborate to attain aesthetic harmony and whimsy.
