Leaning into the Wind is a vibrant journey through the diverse layers of Andy Goldsworthy’s world. From urban Edinburgh and London to the South of France and New England, each environment he encounters becomes a fresh kaleidoscopic canvas for his art. A lushly-visualized travelogue, Goldsworthy’s work and Thomas Riedelsheimer’s exquisite cinematography redefine landscape and inextricably tie human life to the natural world. [Magnolia Pictures]

"No matter how vivid your home setup might be, it's best to see this in a theatre."
- Scott Marks, San Diego Reader
"There are moments where you may want to stop the film to assure yourself you're seeing what you're seeing, so disordering to the senses are Goldsworthy's re-orderings of nature."
- Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Leaning Into the Wind offers viewers a welcome chance to consider the work of an artist who defies the recent commodification cult to embrace the ephemeral and the nominally "worthless.""
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Even if some things have changed, spending time with an artist who's concerned, as he's said in interviews, with "the permanence of temporary objects and the temporality of permanent objects," is always worth the journey."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"Even at its most self-conflicted, this is a fascinating reminder that some art wasn't made to be owned."
- David Ehrlich, indieWire
"Leaning Into the Wind is a study in seeing, in subordinating one's self to the elements, in creating with nature rather than from it."
- Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
"Because time erases or alters Mr. Goldsworthy’s sculptures, movies are the ideal medium to capture them.... The surprise of Leaning Into the Wind is that it’s just as concerned with how time has changed Mr. Goldsworthy."
- Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times
