Leaning Into The Wind – Andy Goldsworthy, Thomas Riedelsheimer’s followup to his 2001 sleeper hit Rivers and Tides, a portrait of innovative British sculptor, photographer and environmentalist Andy Goldsworthy, will open on Friday, March 9 at New York’s Film Forum with a national rollout to follow.
Sixteen years after the release of the groundbreaking film Rivers and Tides – Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time director Thomas Riedelsheimer has returned to work with the artist. Leaning into the Wind – Andy Goldsworthy follows Andy on his exploration of the layers of his world and the impact of the years on himself and his art. As Goldsworthy introduces his own body into the work it becomes at the same time even more fragile and personal and also sterner and tougher, incorporating massive machinery and crews on his bigger projects. Riedelsheimer’s exquisite film illuminates Goldsworthy’s mind as it reveals his art.
