Their remarkable adventures and very special bond has a profound effect on all their lives.

Walking on Water (NR) Genre: Documentary Runtime: 01:45

Famed environmental artist Christo sets out to realize The Floating Piers, his first project in many years. Walking on Water is an unprecedented look at Christo's process, from the inception through to the completion of his latest large-scale art installation, a dahlia-yellow floating walkway atop Italy's Lake Iseo that was eventually experienced by over 1.2 million people. The film takes the viewer on an intimate journey into Christo's world amid mounting madness -- from complex dealings between art and state politics to engineering challenges, logistical nightmares, and the sheer force of mother nature. Captured through breathtaking aerial views and fly on the wall camerawork, we watch the artist's vision unfold, and get to know the man chasing it."The artist's forceful character does battle with technology, bureaucracy, corruption and the elements, resulting in an installation of stunning beauty and a documentary that delights in capturing the act of creation." - Jay Weissberg, Variety
