GOLDSWORTHY RIVERS AND TIDES WORKING WITH TIME
OVERVIEW: Depicting the magical relationship between art and nature while painting a visually intoxicating portrait of world-renowned Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy, RIVERS AND TIDES follows the bohemian free spirit all over the world as he demonstrates and discusses his creative process and artistic philosophies..
From his long-winding rock walls and icicle sculptures to his interlocking leaf chains and multicolored pools of flowers, Goldsworthy’s painstakingly intricate masterpieces are made entirely of materials found in Mother Nature – an unpredictable “critic” who threatens and often succeeds in destroying his art, sometimes before it is even finished..
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the film’s stunning theatrical debut, New Video’s Docurama Films is releasing RIVERS AND TIDES for the first time on Blu-ray in a new high-definition transfer, which will also be available on digital viewing platforms. Already dazzling visuals are heightened in the transfer from the film’s original negative, overseen by director Thomas Riedelsheimer.
SYNOPSIS: With several 4-star reviews from the country’s top critics and numerous festival awards, RIVERS AND TIDES serenely captures Goldsworthy on-camera in the midst of constructing his trademark ephemera, each image more extraordinary than the last. Interweaving an elegant, minimalist soundtrack composed and performed by avant-garde virtuoso Fred Frith, RIVERS AND TIDES is a mesmerizing cinematic experience that helps us to appreciate nature in new and enchanting ways.
