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.

  • This is a hypnotic and beguiling documentary portrait of the 62-year-old site-specific land artist Andy Goldsworthy... Sit back, relax and, in the most literal way possible, watch an artist at work.

  • A friend who watched this with me said that it's the kind of film she'd like to see again when she's dying. That pretty much nails its meditative, melancholy tone...

  • 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."
