Synopsis

An uncensored look into the artistic process and personal relationships of Christo, an artist known for his large-scale installations. Ten years after the passing of his wife and partner, Jeanne-Claude, Christo sets out to realize The Floating Piers, a project they conceived together.

Our take

The brilliant mind and elaborate process of the great environmental artist Christo is captured in all of its spectacle in this documentary portrait. The stalwart plight of the artist, equally absurd, euphoric, and dangerous, is perfectly captured amidst Christo’s epic effort to rethink a landscape.

Critics reviews

Few artists deserve the moniker “maverick” as much as Christo, and few documentarists are as attuned to the intersection of visual delight and strong personality as Andrey Paounov.

The 83-year-old Christo strikes a fascinating figure, a tireless, uncompromising artist who thinks his work is, on the one hand, totally useless, but shows childlike joy when things finally work out.
