FIVE SEASONS (U)
Fletton House, Oundle
Glapthorn Road, PE8 4JA
Director: Thomas Piper 1h 15m
A modern garden designer – Piet Oudolf - changing the look and feel of gardens and giving them a new and sensory idiom. ‘Five Seasons’ immerses viewers in Oudolf’s work and takes us inside his creative process, from his beautifully abstract sketches, to theories on beauty, to the ecological implications of his ideas.
As a narrative thread, the film also follows Oudolf as he designs and installs a major new garden at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, a gallery and arts centre in Southwest England, a garden he considers his best work yet.
Through poetic cinematography and unique access, ‘Five Seasons’ will reveal all that Piet sees, and celebrate all that we as viewers have been unable to see.
“Piper's film is unrushed and chock-full of spark and life, much like the gardens Piper spotlights” Village Voice
