ACT Branch: Film Outing

16 September 2018 @ 4:00 pm AEST

Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf

When an AGHS Branch member alerted the committee to this currently released documentary we set about seeing if we could have it shown in Canberra.   We have been successful and it will be shown at the ARC Cinema, National Film and Sound Archives, Sunday 16 September 4pm and Sunday 14 October 4pm.  The screenings will coincide with Floriade.  We would love it if you can join us for a planned group booking Sunday 16 September.


This documentary immerses viewers in Oudolf’s work and takes us inside his creative process, from his beautifully abstract sketches, to theories on beauty, to the ecological implications of his ideas.


Intimate discussions take place through all four seasons in Piet’s own gardens at Hummelo, and on visits to his signature public works in New York, Chicago, and the Netherlands, as well as to the far-flung locations that inspire his genius, including desert wildflowers in West Texas and post-industrial forests in Pennsylvania.


As a narrative thread, the film also follows Oudolf as he designs and installs a major new garden at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, a gallery and arts center in Southwest England, a garden he considers his best work yet.  For more information on the film visit
