Special for ArtWeek, enjoy an introduction and post-film discussion lead by Robert Rindler, a well-known Wellfleet artist and local arts champion. Leaning Into the Wind is director Thomas Riedelsheimer’s second documentary on renowned artist Andy Goldsworthy, following 2002’s highly acclaimed RIVERS AND TIDES. The film is a vibrant journey through the diverse layers of Goldsworthy’s world, and was chosen because his work embodies the essence of art on the Outer Cape. A lushly-visualized travelogue, Goldsworthy’s work and Riedelsheimer’s exquisite cinematography redefine landscape and inextricably tie human life to the natural world.
This program brings together live music, film, and discussion, to highlight how important songwriters are to the landscape of our society – they have a unique power to foster change through their art.

Along with the screening of a documentary, live, local musicians will play music that relate to the themes in the film so that attendees will have a better understanding of how musicians, and their art, bring change to our society.
