British sculptor, photographer, and environmentalist Andy Goldsworthy, whose site-specific sculptures and land art redeploy nature’s resources in startling and harmonious shapes and textures, was the subject of Riedelsheimer’s landmark documentary Rivers and Tides (2001). Riedelsheimer returns to find Goldsworthy still engaged in his exploration of the natural world, creating stunning work from Brazil to California to his home in Scotland. Also returning is composer Fred Frith, who provides a score to back the film’s hypnotizing rhythms. “[The film] will inspire anyone who sees it to look for the beauty in every gust, to admire how nature constantly rearranges itself, and us along with it. . . . [This] is a fascinating reminder that some art wasn’t made to be owned.—IndieWire.
