Quebec Premiere

16 years after the staggering launch of flagship film Rivers and Tides featuring Andy Goldsworthy’s work, director Thomas Riedelsheimer collaborates once again with the artist. This feature length film follows Goldsworthy in his artistic approach, from which stem projects of a more personal and fragile nature, even though they are now stronger and more robust thanks to superior techniques and bigger crews. An illuminating film opening the door into Goldsworthy’s world, revealing his art living in symbiosis with nature.
