BREATHING EARTH: SUSUMU SHINGU'S DREAM (Germany / UK, 2012, 95 min.)

Japanese artist Susumu Shingu converses with nature through his sculptures. His lifelong dialogue with wind and water has given the world uniquely beautiful works of fluid, unpredictable and ever-changing movement. Susumu renders visible the opaque and the unseen, opening us up to new perspectives. His latest goal is to have a wind-powered village, a meeting place for artists and others, where everyone connects and his sculpture can “breathe with the earth.” The film lingers with Shingu at the sides of ponds and bamboo forests, listening for breezes and emulating the measured pace of his art—the opposite of the verbal catalog that is typical of many documentaries. Directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer. Produced by Leslie Hills and Stefan Tolz.
