Leaning Into the Wind – Andy Goldsworthy, the second documentary on renowned British artist Andy Goldsworthy (following 2001’s memorable Rivers and Tides), takes viewers on a beautiful and entrancing journey into the hillsides, wild terrains and other outdoor spaces that inspire Goldsworthy’s creative spirit. He not only leans into the wind, but also climbs trees, shakes out clouds of pollen, penetrates hedgerows, and lies in the rain. The film chronicles a vibrant journey through the diverse layers of Goldsworthy’s world, including some scenes working with his daughter Holly Goldsworthy. From urban Edinburgh and Glasgow to the South of France and New England, Berlin and San Francisco, each environment he encounters becomes a fresh kaleidoscopic canvas for his art. A lushly-visualized travelogue, Goldsworthy’s work and Riedelsheimer’s exquisite cinematography redefine landscape and inextricably tie human life to the natural world, creating a film experience that is poetic, thoughtful and peaceful.
