Description: One of the latest efforts of famed outdoor avant-garde artist Christo is chronicled in this documentary. Christo's 1991 project, on which he and his wife Jeanne-Claude spent $26 million, was to erect over 31,000 20-foot high umbrellas along certain Japanese and California valleys. They were to remain in place for two weeks. Nature did not cooperate and people on both sides of the Pacific died for Christo's artistic vision. The film follows the birth of the project through its problematic execution. The relationship between Christo and Jeanne-Claude is also observed. Included are interviews and footage of a California couple who got married beneath the umbrellas.~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
