Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf

“Reveals gardens you’d look forward to getting lost in, gardens that brilliantly use the interplay of form and color to do wonderful things to your soul.” (LA Times)

Piet Oudolf, who is best known here for his groundbreaking designs for New York’s High Line and Chicago’s Lurie Gardens, has radically redefined what gardens can be. The documentary immerses us in Oudolf’s work and takes us inside his creative process, as we tag along on visits to his signature public works and wander his own gardens as well. The film also follows Oudolf to Southwest England, where he is immersed in a new project, a garden he considers his best work yet. This poetic, mesmerizing documentary reveals how Oudolf upends our conventional notions of nature, public space, and even beauty itself. “Plants were characters I could compose with, put on stage,” he says. “This is what I do: I let them perform.”

Tickets: $12 (members), $17 (nonmembers)
