Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf

Sunday, May 12
Thursday, May 23
In Dutch and English

“During the most spontaneous sequence in Five Seasons, the accomplished garden designer Piet Oudolf is driving through Texas Hill Country to see the wildflowers, and gobsmacked by their beauty,” says the Hollywood Reporter. “’Just like paintings,’ he enthuses. The same could be said of his influential work, although his preference is for perennials that aren’t conventionally pretty, and palettes that consider grays and browns colors too.”

“It’s a curated wildness,” continues the Hollywood Reporter. “’I put plants onstage,” Oudolf says. “And I let them perform.’”

The documentary’s visions of Oudolf’s work, in gorgeous close-ups as well as from drone-photography angles and time-lapse perspectives, will undoubtedly send some viewers to his books and to the gardens themselves.
