Join us on Wednesday, June 5th, from 7:00pm – 9:00pm for a special film screening of the incredible documentary about the world's most celebrated landscape designer, Piet Oudolf!
"FIVE SEASONS: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf" is an immersive and meditative documentary that reveals how the revolutionary landscape designer, Piet Oudolf, upends our conventional notions of nature, public space, and, ultimately, beauty itself.
Piet Oudolf has radically redefined what gardens can be. As Rick Darke, the famous botanist, says to Piet in the film, "Your work teaches us to see what what we have been unable to see.”
Through poetic cinematography and unique access, FIVE SEASONS will reveal all that Piet sees, and celebrate all that we as viewers have been unable to see.
Piet is the architect behind the new perennial garden that will be planted this summer on Belle Isle in Detroit, Michigan.
“For me, garden design isn’t just about plants, it is about emotion, atmosphere, a sense of contemplation. You try to move people with what you do. You look at this, and it goes deeper than what you see. It reminds you of something in the genes — nature, or the longing for nature.” – Piet Oudolf
