A meditation, in words and images, on the practice of drawing

Painting and drawing have always been at the centre of John Berger's life - in his education, his early novels and his art criticism from the 1950s onwards.

John Berger and Tilda Swinton discuss image-making and read from Bento's SketchbookWith a title inspired by a lost sketchbook belonging to the 17th-century philosopher Baruch Spinoza, Bento's Sketchbook is a clear-sighted meditation on how we perceive, and seek to explain, the world around us.
