Walking On Water


Walking on Water follows internationally renowned artist Christo on his quest to realize “The Floating Piers”, originally conceived in 1970 by Christo and his late wife and collaborator, Jeanne-Claude. In 2016, seven years after Jeanne-Claude’s death, this stunning, site-specific masterpiece was finally cleared to be mounted on Italy’s Lake Iseo, which lies at the foot of the Alps. But securing a location proved to be only the first step in a tumultuous process of creative problem solving and prickly negotiations.

  • “Few artists deserve the moniker “maverick” as much as Christo, and few documentarists are as attuned to the intersection of visual delight and strong personality as Andrey Paounov.“
  • “Christo once again proves to be a colourful and larger than life character. It’s a thrill to watch so many hands come together in the service of great art.”
