Filmmaker and art historian James Crump has compiled both new and original footage along with striking black and white photography in this document of art on a monumental scale. The Land Art movement of the 1960s and 70s challenged the idea of art as consumable by moving it out of the cities' galleries and museums and into the open spaces of the natural landscape, creating works that were utterly un-possessable by artist and audience alike. Discussing works like Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty and Michael Heizer's Double Negative, this impressive, beautiful film explores the intimacy of the private spaces of intention and the magnitude of expression on a terrestrial scale. A dreamy and transcendent look at the work of a fiercely intentional and important movement.

"A film that takes its place among the great art documentaries of the past half-century... filled with great moments, large and small... deftly captures the madcap ambition, grandeur and even sublimity of the works these artists created." The Wall Street Journal

"A colorful and sometimes gorgeous primer on this influential moment." The Hollywood Reporter
