Some 17 years after their first collaboration Rivers and Tides, acclaimed artist Andy Goldsworthy and director Thomas Riedelsheimer are reunited to to look again at Goldsworthy’s unique, tactile and unusually site-specific work that celebrates and relishes harmony in natural surroundings.

From the mud floor of a remote Brazilian villager's hut through to the Scottish forest near his home, the film documents Goldsworthy at work in wonderful locations and also celebrates his kinship with nature - as the now 60-year-old climbs through hedgerows and trees, each environment he encounters becoming a kaleidoscopic canvas for his art.

Meditative, transportative and visually ravishing, this is an essential reflection of its subject, and how his work continues to astound and inspire.
