LEANING INTO THE WIND: ANDY GOLDSWORTHY
in cinemas across Canada

"A soothing, vérité portrait of [an] artist at work." ~ Indiewire

"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" ~ Washington Post

Sixteen years after the release of the ground-breaking film Rivers and Tides – Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time director Thomas Riedelsheimer has returned to work with the artist.

Leaning into the Wind – Andy Goldsworthy follows Andy on his exploration of the layers of his world and the impact of the years on himself and his art. As Goldsworthy introduces his own body into the work it becomes at the same time even more fragile and personal and also sterner and tougher, incorporating massive machinery and crews on his bigger projects.

Thomas’s exquisite film illuminates Goldsworthy’s mind as it reveals his art. I am very pleased to be working once again with Thomas, a long-term collaborator and to be doing so on such a fine film.” ~ Producer, Skyline Productions, Leslie Hills

"In 2011, during a shoot in Scotland, I met Andy Goldsworthy again. It had been ten years since we released Rivers and Tides and we had not seen each other in the interim. From the very first moment I felt like no time has passed at all – it felt as though we had just waved farewell a few days before. It felt intimate immediately and I became aware of my never-ending interest in this man and his work. People who know "Rivers and Tides" think they know Andy Goldsworthy. And so we both felt that adding a new perspective to him and his work would be fascinating. It has been a great time, an unforgettable experience. "Leaning into the Wind" offers a different angle, a different perspective, another perception on many levels. It is not only an expansion of the former film but stands by itself. Another moment in time, of Andy´s life - and of my life." ~ Director, Thomas Riedelsheimer.
