In 1983, Christo and his wife, Jeanne-Claude, wrapped 11 islands off the Florida coast in 6.5 million square feet of pink fabric. This film by legendary documentarians Albert and David Maysles charts the years-long struggle to bring the massive work to fruition. Simultaneously involved with projects in Berlin and Paris, the artists traverse the globe, meeting with politicians, bureaucrats and members of an interested public, struggling to realize their transcendent vision.
