Sculpting This Earth follows internationally acclaimed artist Strijdom van der Merwe over four consecutive seasons as he travels to remote locations in the southern African interior to make beautiful land art works in a striking range of spectacular natural settings.

 Featuring 25 fleeting artworks, the film shows the artist at work in the landscape and sharing his thoughts as he finds his canvases in nature – in verdant valleys and forests, on the shore of a lagoon, in the vast expanses of the arid semi-desert. With stunning cinematography and an extraordinary soundtrack including 11 pieces of music composed for the film, Sculpting This Earth is meditative, powerful and moving.

 Shot over more than a year, from December 2020 to April 2022, the new film from award-winning director Victor van Aswegen is the world’s first feature documentary about land art from the southern hemisphere. Sculpting This Earth premiered on 26 August 2022 and will be released internationally in 2023.
