That rare film about an artist that is, in itself, a work of art, Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time is a sensual and poetic journey into the world and mind of the renowned sculptor. Using materials from nature, Goldsworthy allows the elements to have the last say in his beautiful creations, as his ingenious patterns of wood, leaves, stone and ice move and erode over time. Filmmaker Thomas Riedelsheimer followed the artist for over a year intimately documenting his improvisational process and capturing the serene spectacle of his works. Although Goldsworthy's sculpture is best known through still photography, Rivers and Tides, with its haunting musical score by Fred Frith, is an altogether different way of experiencing the artist’s most ephemeral and fleeting masterpieces.
