THE SHORT FILM: Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf at 6:45pm
Revolutionary landscape designer Piet Oudolf is knownfor designing public works like NYC’s popular High Line and the Lurie garden in Chicago’s Millenium Park that redefine our conception of gardens as works of art in themselves. This gorgeous, meditative documentaryimmerses viewers in his work, taking us inside hiscreative process. From his aesthetic theories to his strikingly abstract sketches to the ecological implications of his ideas, the film poetically reveals how Oudolf upends conventional notions of nature, public space, and ultimately beauty itself. (run time 45 minutes)
