See  PORTRAIT OF A GARDEN at Film Forum 


Wednesday, October 26 – Tuesday, November 1

The oldest and most beautiful “kitchen garden in the Netherlands belongs to an estate that dates back to 1630. Today it is owned by Daan van der Have, who cares for it meticulously, with 85-year-old pruning master Jan Freriks. Rosie Stapel’s debut feature records their passionate oversight of the innumerable vegetables and flowering trees to which they are devoted. Their connoisseurship, depth of knowledge (extending back generations), and exacting care, bear beautiful fruit – and an elegant meditative film.
