Five Seasons: The Gardens Of Piet Oudolf

Directed by Thomas Piper

Five Seasons: The Gardens Of Piet Oudolf still

US, 2018, 75 min, in English and Dutch with English subtitles

Revolutionary landscape designer Piet Oudolf is known for designing public works like New York City’s popular High Line and the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park that redefine our conception of gardens as works of art in themselves. This gorgeous, meditative documentary immerses viewers in his work, taking us inside Oudolf’s creative process. From his aesthetic theories to his strikingly abstract sketches to the ecological implications of his ideas, the film poetically reveals how Oudolf upends conventional notions of nature, public space, and, ultimately, beauty itself.

"A pleasure on multiple fronts: sensorially, conceptually, narratively."
