Leaning Into The Wind – Andy Goldsworthy

From the filmmaker and artist behind Rivers And Tides

16 years after Rivers And Tides – Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time, director Thomas Riedelsheimer once again teams up with artist Andy Goldsworthy to create Leaning Into The Wind.

Poster for the art documentary Leaning Into The Wind - Andy GoldsworthyAndy Goldsworthy is a Scotland-based landscape sculptor and photographer who is inspired by and collaborates with nature to create art. Time is a major theme running through Goldsworthy’s work: delicate ice structures melt, leaves float downriver, even rock can be worn down by water or wind. The film follows Goldsworthy over four years as he works on projects spanning Brazil to the U.S. to his Scottish home. The artist has, over the years, increasingly involved himself in his art, and the film is as much about how time has changed Goldsworthy himself as well as his art.

‘You can walk on the path, or you can walk through the hedge,’ Goldsworthy says, as he muses on how one can look at the world; he, obviously, chooses Option B whenever possible.

Leaning Into The Wind is a beautiful work of cinema, a reminder of the power yet impermanence of nature.
