Thomas Riedelsheimer's 2001 film on artist Andy Goldsworthy 'Rivers and Tides' at 5th Avenue Cinema
Saturday, February 20, 2010 - 7:00pm to Saturday, February 20, 2010 - 9:00pm

WHAT: Artist Andy Goldsworthy is famous for his use of found objects and the natural environment when constructing his temporary installations.  Director Thomas Riedelsheimer followed Goldsworty for a year, capturing the world through his eyes. The film is a meditative experience as we come to understand how Goldsworty sees the potential for beauty everywhere. He has a deep connection to the environment and he wants you to feel it too.  We also feel his pain when a day of painstaking construction on an icicle sculpture falls apart or a day of stacking rocks feels like a waste.  The other star of this film is the natural environment; beautifully shot scenes and the perfect score by Fred Frith turn a stream running through a prairie into compelling cinema.
