Presented in a limited Bay Area engagement (but not in current US distribution), this elegant and meditative new movie from the director of Rivers and Tides (still one of the Rafael’s most popular films) is a worthy successor to the earlier film’s beauty. Filmmaker Thomas Riedelsheimer’s subject is Japanese sculptor Susumu Shingu, who pays tribute to nature with hypnotic and playful kinetic works powered by wind and water. Following Shingu around the world in search of a place where art and sustainability can coexist, the film captures his stunning work in its natural habitats, including Japan, Italy and an area in Mexico, where Monarch butterflies congregate. Primarily Japanese language with English subtitles. Director: Thomas Riedelsheimer. (Germany 2013) 97 min.
