Breathing Earth: Susumu Shingu’s Dream
World famous Japanese artist and architect Susumu Shingu sculpts the winds and follows them in search of a resting place, a wind powered home, for his long, lifetime dream of Breathing Earth. He talks with nature through hus sculptures. His lifelong dialogue with the wind and with water has given the world uniquely beautiful works of fluid, unpredictable and ever changing movement. Susumu renders visible the veiled and the unseen and opens to us new perspectives. Film director Thomas Riedelsheimer accompanies this quiet and unassuming man in pursuit of a dream, a quest to create an awareness of our planet, our breathing earth and our human values. Breathing Earth is a film about the wind, the philosophy of a wise person, about art and love and dreams. The film won the Jury Award at the 32nd International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA) in Montreal in March 2014.
This movie is presented in collaboration with the Initiative for Public Art – Reston (IPAR).
