‘Leaning Into The Wind’ Is A Worthy Sequel To Documentary Smash ‘Rivers And Tides’ — Sf Film Festival Review

12 April 2017 8:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Either an artistic environmentalist or an environmental artist, Cheshire native Andy Goldsworthy has spent the better part of his life using natural resources (and almost nothing else) to create site-specific works that are built to fall apart. He wraps icicles around shrubs like ribbons, and leaves before they melt. He lies on the ground at the first hint of rain in order to leave a dry silhouette amidst the drops. Some of his projects disappear in seconds — he’s known to wrap flower petals around his hands so tight that they look like engorged flesh, and then dip his hands into a stream to watch the petals shed off and float away. Others will surely outlive him — he’s fascinated by rock walls, and will carve trenches between them in order to foster the sensation of being inside the earth — but on a long enough timeline, even those more enduring »

Magnolia Nabs Andy Goldsworthy Documentary ‘Leaning Into the Wind’ (Exclusive)

12 April 2017 8:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Magnolia Pictures has nabbed U.S. rights to “Leaning Into the Wind,” a documentary look at British artist Andy Goldsworthy, Variety has learned.

The deal comes on the held of the film’s world premiere at the San Francisco International Film Festival. It marks director Thomas Riedelsheimer’s second film on Goldsworthy. The previous effort, 2001’s “Rivers and Tides,” was a surprise art house hit, grossing $2.2 million, a lordly sum for a non-fiction film, particularly one about fine art.

Perhaps its the ecological tinge to Goldsworthy’s work that allowed the picture to connect with audiences. He is a sculptor and photographer, best known for his land art. His installations have appeared at the National Gallery of Art, the M. H. de Young Memorial Museum, and the National Museum of Scotland. He lives and works in Scotland.

According to Magnolia, the film follows »

How Do You Find Distribution at a Film Festival? San Francisco’s New Launch Section Provides An Original Opportunity

30 March 2017 8:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 2002, director Thomas Riedelsheimer premiered his documentary “River and Tides – Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time” at the San Francisco International Film Festival. At the time, its future was uncertain: Unlike Sundance, San Francisco wasn’t an active marketplace for movies in search of U.S. distribution. Nevertheless, the movie won a top prize at the festival and began its theatrical life at the Roxie that year before gradually finding an audience nationwide. When it opened in Chicago in early 2003, Roger Ebert gave it four stars, noting its Bay Area origin story and a history of “finding its audience not so much through word of mouth as through hand on elbow, as friends steered friends into the theater.”

Now, Riedelsheimer is returning to San Francisco with a sequel to “Rivers and Tides” called “Leaning Into the Wind,” which updates viewers on the progress of British artist Goldsworthy, and the movie has »
