Sixteen years after Rivers and Tides, filmmaker Thomas Riedelsheimer returns with this absorbing documentary portrait of the influential British sculptor and environmentalist Andy Goldsworthy.

An award-winning, globally celebrated artist, Andy Goldsworthy OBE is known for works situated in rural and urban settings that combine materials and conditions from everyday surroundings - both monumental works of land art and others that exist only briefly before being altered or erased by natural processes. Riedelsheimer intimately captures Goldsworthy’s exploration of the world and himself through these ephemeral and permanent workings on the landscape, cities and his own body.

As much an illumination of Goldsworthy’s mind as it is an exquisitely shot exploration of his unique approaches to art, Leaning Into the Wind journeys from his hometown of Dumfries to France, Brazil and the USA as he creates stunning works of art from the world around him.
