Walking On Water

Tuesday, July 23 at 6PM and 9PM

1 Hour 45 MINUTES | RATED NR | 2018

Bulgarian director Andrey Paounov's documentary chronicles famed environmental artist Christo and his first major project after the death of his wife and long-time collaborator Jeanne-Claude. With the help of his logistics team, he overcomes numerous challenges to realize his 2016 masterpiece "The Floating Piers": a surreal yellow floating walkway on Italy's Lake Iseo.

The film takes the viewer on an intimate journey into Christo’s world amid mounting madness – from complex dealings between art and state politics to engineering challenges, logistical nightmares, and the sheer force of mother nature. Captured through breathtaking aerial views and fly on the wall camerawork, we watch the artist’s vision unfold, and get to know the man chasing it.
