Storyline

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 anonymous

Must See Movie
9 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like anyone on IMDb, I'm a movie lover. I see a lot of movies, so it takes a very good film for me to take the time to write a glowing review on IMDb. I was fortunate enough to see it at the Austin Film Festival and I loved it. It opened my eyes to an artist and story that I had never heard of. Earthwork is a beautifully crafted indie that I hope breaks out when it is released in late April. It's one those movies that sort of sneaks up on you and days or weeks later you think about certain shots of Stan Herd's crop art, the opening title sequence and the heartbreaking story and you think...damn...that was a good movie. Big ups to the director Chris Ordal and the whole crew for representing Kansas in a big way! Ordal definitely has a bright future in the film industry. He doesn't beat you over the head with flashy shots and camera moves like most debut directors...he tells the story like it should be told and he lets the actors act. Kudos
