After visiting Piet Oudolphs beautiful garden at The Hauser Wirth Museum in Somerset we just had to screen this film as part of our Beacon Season.After completing a feature documentary on New Yorks High Line, award-winning filmmaker Thomas Piper met the inspirational designer and plantsman, Piet Oudolf, and the idea for a new project was born. The documentary, Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf, immerses viewers in Oudolfs work and takes us inside his creative process, from his beautifully abstract sketches, to theories on beauty, to the ecological implications of his ideas.Intimate discussions take place through all fours seasons in Piets own gardens at Hummelo, and on visits to his signature public works in New York, Chicago, and the Netherlands, as well as to the far-flung locations that inspire his genius, including desert wildflowers in West Texas and post-industrial forests in Pennsylvania.As a narrative thread, the film also follows Oudolf as he designs and installs a major new garden at Hauser Wirth Somerset, a gallery and arts centre in Southwest England, a garden he considers his best work yet.Piet Oudolf has radically redefined what gardens can be. As Rick Darke, the famous botanist, says to Piet in the film, your work teaches us to see what what we have been unable to see.Through poetic cinematography and unique access, Five Seasons will reveal all that Piet sees, and celebrate all that we as viewers have been unable to see.An enchanting tour led by the worlds most famous garden designer and avid plant lover. ★★★★★ Spirituality PracticeFive Seasons reveals gardens youd look forward to getting lost in, gardens that brilliantly use the interplay of form and color to do wonderful things to your soul.Director: Thomas PiperRelease date: 16.06.2019 - Dartmouth FilmsRun time: 1 hour 15 mins
