In the Garden (Im Garten)

In the Garden
Scene from "In the Garden"

A film portrait of a garden, which the gardener and philosopher of nature Karl Foerster designed in 1910 in Potsdam. In the Garden was filmed in monthly intervals to show how the garden changed in the course of a year, from October 2000 through to November 2001.

"'The flower proves to be a greater pioneer of the new relations between the world and the soul. Unimaginable effects proceed from gardens and flowers' Karl Foerster wrote, and we think that some of the spiritual power of this garden has rubbed off on us." Ute Aurand, Baerbel Freund
