Umbrellas

Umbrellas




Genre: Documentary
USA, 1994, 81'
Directors: Albert Maysles, Henry Corra, Grahame Weinbren
Umbrellas takes a poignant, in-depth look at the concept and realization of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's project, Umbrellas: Joint Project for Japan and U.S.A presenting the artist at his most triumphant and most vulnerable moments - from the exaltation of the project's opening day through unexpected tragedies at the end.


The artists chose sites with contrasting cultures, among people who were unsophisticated about art; a rice-farming valley in the Japanese province of lbaraki, 72 miles north of Tokyo, and a cluster of cattle ranches in the rolling hills of southern California, 60 miles north of Los Angeles.
