Artist Andy Goldsworthy is famous for his use of found objects and the natural environment when constructing his temporary installations. Director Thomas Riedelsheimer followed Goldsworty for a year, capturing the world through his eyes. The film is a meditative experience as we come to understand how Goldsworty sees the potential for beauty everywhere. He has a deep connection to the environment and he wants you to feel it too. We also feel his pain when a day of painstaking construction on an icicle sculpture falls apart or a day of stacking rocks feels like a waste. The other star of this film is the natural environment; beautifully shot scenes and the perfect score by Fred Frith turn a stream running through a prairie into compelling cinema.
