The theatrical phenomenon RIVERS AND TIDES depicts the magical relationship between art and nature while painting a visually intoxicating portrait of famed artist Andy Goldsworthy. Gorgeously shot and masterfully edited, the film follows the bohemian free spirit all over the world as he demonstrates and opens up about his unique creative process. From his long-winding rock walls and icicle sculptures to his interlocking leaf chains and multicolored pools of flowers, Goldsworthy’s painstakingly intricate masterpieces are made entirely of materials found in Mother Nature – who threatens and often succeeds in destroying his art, sometimes before it is even finished. In this stunning Blu-ray edition, already dazzling visuals are heightened in the high-definition transfer from the film’s original negative, overseen by director Thomas Riedelsheimer.
More than an hour of bonus features include 7 short films, including Storm King Wall, Leaf Horn, Ice Arc, and Snowballs in Summer.
