‘Vertigo’ Revisited: Guy Maddin Explores Hitchcock’s Classic With Found Footage — Sf International Film Festival

15 April 2017 2:19 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s usually unwise to remake a masterpiece, but Guy Maddin has something different planned for “The Green Fog,” a meditation on Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo.” Unlike Gus Van Sant’s much-maligned 1998 shot-for-shot remake of “Psycho,” the Canadian director has revisited the 1958 thriller as an assemblage of old footage from San Francisco, the city where “Vertigo” takes place.

However, the project was never intended to have anything to do with “Vertigo.”

In “The Green Fog — A San Francisco Fantasia,” commissioned by San Francisco Film Society and set to close the San Francisco International Film Festival’s 60th edition on April 16, Maddin and co-directors Evan and Galen Johnson explore what Maddin has called “a rhapsody” on the Hitchcock movie. Set to an original score by composer Jacob Garchik that will be performed live by the San Francisco-based Kronos Quartet, the 63-minute “The Green Fog” reimagines the movie through an assemblage of »

‘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 »

Asa Butterfield and Ellen Burstyn Star In ‘The House Of Tomorrow,’ A Sweet Retro-Futurist Coming-Of-Age Story — Sf Film Festival Review

12 April 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A mawkish coming-of-age story that marries Sundance vibes with a soft punk spirit, Peter Livolsi’s “The House of Tomorrow” never manages to flesh out its skeleton of quirks, but its heart is definitely in the right place.

Very faithfully adapted from Peter Bognanni’s 2010 novel of the same name, Livolsi’s directorial debut is — after “Brigsby Bear” and “The Space Between Us” — at least the third new film this year that falls into the beguiling sub-genre of movies about young men who’ve been raised in isolation from the rest of the world. The stranger life gets, the more we might be compelled towards portraits of people who can stand outside of civilization and offer a new perspective on the mess we’ve made (in which case, we ought to brace for this sub-genre to get a lot bigger between now and 2020).

This one begins in a geodesic dome in the woods of Minnesota, »

Film Review: ‘Leaning Into the Wind’

9 April 2017 2:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“You can walk down the path, or you can walk through the hedge,” says Andy Goldsworthy in Thomas Ridelsheimer’s second documentary about the British sculptor. That Goldsworthy invariably chooses Plan B goes to the heart of the fascination with his site-specific, variably ephemeral work, in which elements of the natural surroundings are altered into striking yet harmonious new shapes. “Leaning Into the Wind” is not so much a sequel to as simply an extension of the prior film, “Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time,” sharing the same meditative, episodic, visually seductive appeal — albeit spread out on a somewhat wider globe-trotting canvas this time, reflecting its subject’s increased fame 16 years later.

That earlier study was a surprise breakout hit, grossing $2.3 million for Roxie Releasing in U.S. theatrical release alone. While it may not match that unusual success for a contemporary-art doc, “Wind” is sure to »

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 »
