In the timeless tradition of Koyaanisqatsi and Baraka, the theatrical phenomenon RIVERS AND TIDES depicts the magical relationship between art and nature while painting a visually intoxicating portrait of famed artist Andy Goldsworthy. Gorgeously shot and masterfully edited the film follows Goldsworthy all over the world as he demonstrates his unique creative process, constructing painstakingly intricate masterpieces made entirely of materials found in Mother Nature.
