In 1994, real-life crop artist Stan Herd traveled from Kansas to Manhattan's Upper West Side to create a massive environmental artwork on land owned by Donald Trump. The multi-acre artwork was made from soil, rock, plants and vegetation near an underground railway tunnel. Stan recruited a number of homeless individuals living in the tunnel to become his crew. Over the months it took to complete the earthwork, Stan dealt with a myriad of difficulties in bringing his unique, rural art form to an urban canvas and the many costs his art exacted upon his life. In the process, he unexpectedly encountered the true meaning of his art and it's ultimate, lasting rewards. Written by
I saw this film with my 3 sisters at the Kansas International Film Festival in Overland Park last week. We loved it. We had no real idea of what the movie would be and I thought it was to be documentary. The director and one actor (I believe most of the actors were Kansans) were available for a Q&A and we learned that the artist has made his living from his art without ever having to take another job. The characters he met in NYC are endearing and are based on actual people, I think. He has done art in several countries. It was interesting to see how his vision was translated into a work of art although we never got to see it. During the credits, however, there are shots of some of the art he has created and it is lovely. I liked the movie a lot.
