Rivers and Tides

stills from the documentary
Rivers and Tides
(Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time)
2003NR 90 minutes

This astonishing documentary from Thomas Riedelsheimer shadows renowned sculptor Andy Goldsworthy as he creates works of art with ice, driftwood, leaves, stone, dirt and snow in open fields, beaches, rivers, creeks and forests. With each new creation, he carefully studies the energetic flow and transitory nature of his work. The film won the Golden Gate Award Grand Prize for Best Documentary at the 2003 San Francisco International Film Festival.

Just saw this on instant NetFlix. HIghly recommend it. Goldsworthy is a personal hero and an amazingly sensitive and connected artist.
