Documentarian Thomas Riedelsheimer and sculptor Andy Goldsworthy team up for a follow-up to 2001’s Rivers and Tides. Goldsworthy’s breathtaking work is revealed in a travelogue of pieces created in Brazil, Scotland, and beyond, where the artist shaped found landscapes, drawing the eye to the grace of the natural world.
Leaning into the Wind follows the ephemeral land artist as he introduces his own body into larger projects, and his work becomes more fragile and personal while at the same time sterner and tougher.
“LEANING INTO THE WIND will inspire anyone who sees it to look for the beauty in every gust, to admire how nature constantly rearranges itself, and us along with it... This is a fascinating reminder that some art wasn’t made to be owned.” —David Ehrlich, Indiewire
Directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer, 2017, 93 min.
