Walking on Water

by Andrey Paounov

Biografilm Art&Music

(Italy, USA, Bulgaria / 2018 / 100’)

Ten years after the death of his wife Jeanne-Claude, in 2016 Christo turned one of their dreams into reality: The Floating Piers, a project they had conceived together many years before, a yellow floating bridge like the sun that joined the shores of Lake Iseo. Through the construction of one of the greatest works of art ever, Walking on Water outlines the figure of a man who has always favoured experience over demagogy. Against the backdrop of this epic madness - the complex political negotiations, the engineering challenges, the logistical nightmares, not to mention the force of nature - the screen discloses the dream of an artist, but also the spirit of the man who pursues it: Christo.
