Christo's Valley Curtain

Christo's Valley Curtain



USA, 1974, 28'
Directors: David Maysles, Albert Maysles, Ellen Giffard
The movie is the permanent record of a project that rocked the artistic community. Conceived and financed by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, this was no ordinary curtain. Made of nine tons of orange nylon polymide fabric, it stretched a full quarter-mile and was suspended from four steel cables 365 feet above Rifle Gap, Colorado (pop. 2,150). The workers who hung the curtain across the valley discovered a new form of art.
