RIVERS AND TIDES: ANDY GOLDSWORTHY WORKING WITH TIME (Germany, 2001, 92 min.)

Acclaimed around the world for his site-specific earthworks, beautiful and ephemeral sculptures in the open air made of ice, mud, leaves, driftwood, stones and twigs, Andy Goldsworthy thinks incessantly about “the veins that connect things.” Shot in four countries (including his home base in Penpont, Scotland and the Storm King Art Center in New York state) and across four seasons, in stunning 35 mm, this award-winning film works on several levels to capture the unpredictability, brilliance and sheer sensuality of Goldsworthy’s work. Directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer.

THE HUMAN TOUCH (clips)

Ten years after making Rivers and Tides, Riedelsheimer and Goldsworthy started a new collaboration, exploring more aspects of Goldsworthy’s work and how it has changed over the years…“The older you get, the more loss you have to deal with,” he says. His pieces become darker and explore the human need to conquer. His body plays an even more important role in his art. Pre-production excerpts from the work-in-progress will be shown, along with Riedelsheimer’s video introduction discussing his new projects and his approach to filmmaking.
