For many, Piet Oudolf is more than just a master plantsman. He’s considered a gardening rock star and contemporary artist. Those fortunate enough to have visited his gardens know that his award-winning plant compositions are best enjoyed in-person, where one can better appreciate their four-season appeal, depth, and sense of movement. In appreciation of Oudolf’s complex landscapes, Thomas Piper, the Director of Production for the Checkerboard Film Foundation, embarked on a cinematography project to capture Oudolf “at work and in his own words.” The following short film is a documentary teaser Piper released to gather support and funds for the film.
