The Alaska Design Forum would like to invite you to a wonderful evening of visual delight as we bring up a newly released film in its theatrical debut, 'Five Seasons : The Gardens of Piet Oudolf' as an Official Selection to the Anchorage International Film Festival.
Revolutionary landscape designer Piet Oudolf is known for designing public works like 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 his work, taking us inside Oudolf’s creative 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.
