After a its preview presentation during FIAC 2012, the Galerie is pleased to announce the broadcast of Thomas Riedelsheimer’s documentary Breathing Earth – Susumu Shingu’s Dream on French-German TV-channel ARTE, on November 15, 2015 at 11:55pm.
Since they met at the gallery in 2006, they both have been working on this movie that explores Susumu Shingu’s relations with nature and the way he sublimates the elements – wind, water, light – with in sculptures in perpetual motion. 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 man, about art, love and dreams.
The film was presented in January 2013 for the opening night of the International Art Film Days in the auditorium of the Louvre Museum, in France. Following this screening, the film won several awards and notably the Jury’s Price of the 32th International Art Film Festival in Montreal in March 2014.
