Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf
an award-winning documentary by Thomas Piper

Regional screenings sponsored by:
Minnesota State Horticultural Society

Revolutionary Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf is known for designing public works like New York City’s popular High Line and the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park that redefine our conception of gardens as works of art. This gorgeous, meditative documentary immerses viewers in his work, taking us inside Oudolf’s creative process. He layers native and non-native perennials with grasses that are beautiful in every season. From his aesthetic theories to his strikingly abstract sketches to the ecological implications of his ideas, the film poetically reveals how Oudolf upends conventional notions of nature, public space and, ultimately, beauty itself.

“We thought it was important to sponsor these screenings to motivate gardeners and inspire them with a new concept for sustainable designs that are also pollinator magnets,” says Lara Lau-Schommer, MSHS Community Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator. “We’re bringing this film to the community in March, as all gardeners are itching to get into the garden. Piet Ouldolf is truly an artist when it comes to garden design.”

This documentary is being shown around the world, but these are the only screenings in our region. Don’t miss it while it’s here!
