Film: Rivers and Tides – Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time

May 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

“It offers extraordinary beauty. We watch as he smashes stones to release their cyan content and uses that bright-red dye to make spectacular patterns in the currents and whirlpools of streams. We see a long rope of linked leaves, bright green, uncoil as it floats downstream. Before, we saw only the surface of the water, but now the movement of the leaves reveals its current and structure. What a happy man. Watching this movie is like daydreaming.” – Roger Ebert, ★★★★

In the timeless tradition of films like Winged Migration and Koyaanisqatsi, the theatrical phenomenon RIVERS AND TIDES: ANDY GOLDSWORTHY WORKING WITH TIME depicts the magical relationship between art and nature while painting a visually intoxicating portrait of renowned environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy.

Goldsworthy’s art is supposed to fall apart. He creates large-scale outdoor sculptures and artworks out of natural materials like mud, wood, ice and stone in an attempt to imbue the physical world with a spiritual, ephemeral element. From long-winding rock walls and icicle sculptures to interlocking leaf chains and multicolored pools of flowers, Goldsworthy’s painstakingly intricate masterpieces are made entirely of materials crafted by Mother Nature – who threatens and often succeeds in destroying his artwork, sometimes before it is even finished.

Gorgeously shot and masterfully edited, this astonishing documentary from Thomas Riedelsheimer shadows Goldsworthy as he creates works of art with ice, driftwood, leaves, stone, dirt and snow in open fields, beaches, rivers, creeks and forests – following the bohemian free spirit as he collaborates with the natural world to construct his art everywhere from upstate New York to his home village in Scotland, opening up about his creative process, inspirations, frustrations and artistic goals.

Acclaimed by both critics and audiences, the quietly moving RIVERS AND TIDES serenely captures the wholly unique, solitary artist in the midst of constructing his trademark ephemera on-camera, creating a mesmerizing cinematic experience that helps us to appreciate both nature and art in new and enchanting ways.
