Synopsis

Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art
This documentary tells the story of land art (also known as earthworks) by focusing on the artists who drove the movement in the 1960s and '70s. The film includes rare footage and interviews with artists like Robert Smithson, Walter De Maria, and Michael Heizer, who traded in paint brushes and ordinary sculpting tools for a chance to turn the natural world into their canvas. Their works, which were largely done in desolate areas of the American Southwest, involved moving earth, rocks and organic materials to create large-scale masterpieces that couldn't be contained in a gallery. Directed by James Crump, who also helmed the art doc Black White + Gray: A Portrait of Sam Wagstaff and Robert Mapplethorpe. ~ Jennifer Lackman, Rovi
