GARDEN IN THE SEA (JARDIN EN EL MAR) (Germany / Mexico, 2011, 68 min.)
United States Premiere Award-winning director Thomas Riedelsheimer (Rivers and Tides and Touch the Sound) followed Spanish artist Cristina Iglesias to the Mexican Sea of Cortez, to the depths of Candelor Bay off the Island of Espiritu Santo, where she was commissioned to create an underwater sculpture. For four years the artist, well-known for her public installations, worked to create a piece that would express the extraordinary beauty of Baja California and emphasize the importance of protecting the area. Reidelsheimer’s camera makes the beauty of the landscape tangible and considers not only the role of art but also human passion, experiences and longings. Directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer.
