Christo in Paris.

If one ever wondered how Christo develops his huge wrapping projects, this tape may be a revelation. It follows his three-year efforts to wrap the Pont Neuf in Paris. We are given vignettes of his life, insight into his creative process, and instruction on how to deal with public bureaucracies. This compelling program illustrates how he goes about a project, with a special focus on aesthetic aspects, technical problems, and the economic concerns. Rather unique in its format, the tape maintains a high production quality. It would be enjoyed by well-prepared middle school students and certainly high school and university students committed to work in the visual arts.
