The programme says:
This charming , eloquent film looks at an artist who wants to create a wind-powered community.The story of how Susumu Shingu moves from sculpture to architecture, and why he wants to do it, brings us into contact with a passionate environmental story, a moving exploration of creativity, and a remarkably sweet and engaging human being. The artist’s lifelong “dialogue with the wind and with water” is evoked through beautiful, lustrous imagery and the wisdom of a man who has lived a long life with his eyes wide open.
Public Sales open Monday 3rd June at 10am. Filmhouse members’ sales 10am Thursday 30th May.
This is Thomas’ third film to be shown at EIFF. Rivers and Tides, Andy Goldsworthy working with Time premiered in 2001 and Touch the Sound – a Sound Journey with Evelyn Glennie in 2004
