Garden_in_the_Sea_copy.jpgAward-Winning filmmaker Thomas Riedelsheimer (Rivers and Tides, Touch the Sound) brings us Garden in the Sea, a visually stunning documentary about art, landscape and environmental conservation. For four years, the director follows internationally renowned Spanish artist Cristina Iglesias as she begins to create a commissioned underwater work for Mexico’s Sea of Cortez. As she explores both land and sea seeking direction and inspiration for her installation, her experiences are captured in the flawless cinematography that leaves poetic and lasting images of a sea that is still abundant and a land that is still plentiful. Expanding the form of a classic portrait, this film captures the creative process and human passion to make the stunning yet fragile beauty of our world tangible. ~ Hot Docs

“…the artwork, and its inception, is exceptional. seeing it after the sea has begun to claim it, schools of fish swimming through it, coral beginning to cling to its side, is close to mystical.” ~ LA Times

Screening: June 01, 2013 at New People Cinema. SF Premiere.
