Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Monumental Art


Christo is an artist famed for making gigantic, public works of art – most famously wrapping Berlin’s Reichstag. But the man himself is elusive – he refuses to talk about himself, preferring always to talk about his art.

This film looks behind the mask of this genius by telling the story of the artist in his own words. With no narrator and Christo talking directly to camera, this is an intimate portrait of a man in his ninth decade, looking back at an extraordinary body of work.
