Germany | 2012 | 93 minutes | Thomas Riedelsheimer

Thomas Riedelsheimer (Rivers and Tides) explores the world of Japanese artist Susumu Shingu, who dreams of creating a wind-powered home where his graceful wind and water sculptures can breathe with the earth.

75-year-old artist and kinetic sculptor Susumu Shingu talks with nature through his sculptures. His lifelong dialogue with the wind and with water has given the world uniquely beautiful works of fluid, unpredictable and ever-changing movement. Director Thomas Riedelsheimer's gorgeous filmmaking accompanies this quiet and unassuming man in pursuit of a dream, a quest to create an awareness of our planet, our breathing earth and our human values.
