FIVE SEASONS: THE GARDENS OF PIET OUDOLF

Introductory presentation by Carolyn Mullet, owner/operator of CarexTours garden tours

Revolutionary landscape designer Piet Oudolf is known for designing public works — such as New York City's popular High Line and the Lurie Garden in Chicago's Millennium Park — that redefine our conception of gardens as works of art in themselves. This gorgeous, meditative documentary immerses viewers in Oudolf's work, taking us inside his creative process. From his aesthetic theories to his strikingly abstract sketches and the ecological implications of his ideas, the film poetically reveals how Oudolf upends conventional notions of nature, public space and, ultimately, beauty itself.

Presented as part of Science on Screen®, an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
