Walking on Water

Ten years after the passing of his wife and creative partner, Christo sets out to realize The Floating Piers, a project they conceived together many years before. We experience Christo’s process of engaging the whole community surrounding Italy’s Lake Iseo in order to create an extravagant dahlia-yellow walkway that sits atop of the water. Amid mounting madness—from complex dealings between art and state politics to engineering challenges, logistical nightmares, and the sheer force of mother nature—the artwork is completed against all odds.
