Synopsis:
Sixteen years after their first collaboration on the groundbreaking Rivers and Tides, filmmaker Thomas Riedelsheimer returns with 'Leaning Into the Wind: Andy Goldsworthy', an absorbing documentary portrait of the influential British sculpter and environmentalist. The film journeys from Andy's home in Dumfriesshire to France, Brazil and the USA as he creates stunning works of art from the world around him. Meditative, transportive and visually ravishing, this is an essential reflection of its subject's increasing prominence and how his work continues to astound and inspire.

Wonderful film - Leaning Into the Wind review by RC

Spoiler Alert
09/11/2018

Humility, sheer determination, patience, his striking visions and meticulous hand-skills, are just some of the reasons Andy Goldsworthy has always been one of my heroes. I once saw him live, and remembered him saying that he was an artist so he could understand nature. This recent film shows him working with mortality: in his stone structures like sepulchres with holes resonant of coffins that people can lie in, are striking. His continual work with a fallen elm tree over many years, making art around its fallen trunk and branches, its phantom limbs. The sight of Goldsworthy climbing his way along the branches of a hedgerow is mesmerising. The last shot of him leaning into the wind is his defiance against mortality as well as his embrace of life cycles and is a tribute to one of our greatest artists.

Fine film about a great artist - Leaning Into the Wind review by TE

Spoiler Alert

This film makes a perfect pairing with 'Rivers and Tides', an earlier film of Goldsworthy's work by the same director.

Brilliant balance between simplicity and profundity, often within the same frame.

The film is a wonderful record of one of the world's most important artists at work.
