Bending Sticks: The Sculpture of Patrick Dougherty

Directed by Penelope Maunsell and Kenny Dalsheimer

The feature length documentary Bending Sticks: The Sculpture of Patrick Dougherty DVD celebrates the twenty-five year career of internationally renowned environmental artist Patrick Dougherty, who has created hundreds of monumental, site-specific sculptures out of nothing more than saplings. The film follows the artist and his collaborators during a year of stick work and reveals Dougherty’s process, personal story, and inspirations. The film explores how the artist’s childhood—spent rambling through the woods and building forts and hideouts with his four siblings—fueled his career and nurtured the prolific, insightful artist he is today.
