HS-01. Leaning into the Wind: Andy Goldsworthy
UK/Germany, Feature Documentary, 2017, 92 min
What if a tree falls in the forest and there's no videographer around? Andy Goldsworthy's art creations are all made in nature, subject to the whims of weather, and last anywhere from just a few seconds to several years. Each environment he encounters becomes a fresh kaleidoscopic canvas for his art. Goldsworthy struck gold a few years ago when he teamed up with famed filmmaker Thomas Riedelsheimer to produce the huge art house hit Rivers and Tides featuring much of Goldsworthy’s work. A lushly visualized travelogue, Goldsworthy’s art and Riedelsheimer's exquisite cinematography redefine landscape and inextricably tie human life to the natural world. Subtitled.
Leaning into the Wind is a worthy sequel to documentary smash Rivers and Tides.
