Movie Info

LEANING INTO THE WIND is a vibrant journey through the diverse layers of Andy Goldsworthy's world. From urban Edinburgh and London to the South of France and New England, each environment he encounters becomes a fresh kaleidoscopic canvas for his art. A lushly-visualized travelogue, Goldsworthy's work and Thomas Riedelsheimer's exquisite cinematography redefine landscape and inextricably tie human life to the natural world.

No matter how vivid your home setup might be, it's best to see this in a theatre.

There are moments where you may want to stop the film to assure yourself you're seeing what you're seeing, so disordering to the senses are Goldsworthy's re-orderings of nature.

"Leaning Into the Wind" offers viewers a welcome chance to consider the work of an artist who defies the recent commodification cult to embrace the ephemeral and the nominally "worthless."

This is one of the most relaxing experiences I have had watching a movie in a long time.

Even if some things have changed, spending time with an artist who's concerned, as he's said in interviews, with "the permanence of temporary objects and the temporality of permanent objects," is always worth the journey.
