VIFF 2013 review: Breaking Earth: Susumu Shingu Working With the Wind
Director Thomas Riedelsheimer once again employs his exquisite observational eye to profile an artist, as he did with Andy Goldsworthy ( Rivers and Tides) and Evelyn Glennie (Touch the Sound). This time, it’s Japanese sculptor and architect Susumu Shingu, whose wind- and water-powered kinetic works are hypnotic and playful tributes to nature. Shingu travels the world, from Italy to Mexico, on a quest to find a place to build an environmentally sensitive, arts-oriented community. An elegant and meditative documentary.
