This visually striking, thought-provoking documentary about the British installation artist Andy Goldsworthy is a sequel to the director’s groundbreaking Rivers and Tides—Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time (2003). A portrait of an artist and his thoughts and concerns, Leaning into the Wind captures not only the beloved natural environments and locations where Goldsworthy chooses to make his site-specific work, but also the ephemeral aspect of his art. Featuring installations made in San Francisco’s Presidio as well as in Europe, the film shows how Goldsworthy’s large-scale projects often function as self-portraits in which his body becomes part of the piece.
