In 1979, artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude proposed one of the largest public art projects in history: a "golden river" of 7,500 orange-fabric gates in Manhattan's Central Park. Then, for 26 years, they fought for the city's approval until finally, in 2005, "The Gates" was installed over 23 miles of walkways. This captivating documentary reveals the intricate process behind their magnificent work and captures the sheer amazement of its many witnesses. 98 min.
