On Sunday, July 7th, Sierra Cinemas/Nevada Theatre Film Series presents “Walking on Water” at 7pm at the Nevada Theatre.
Famed environmental artist Christo sets out to realize The Floating Piers, his first project in many years. ‘Walking on Water’ is an unprecedented look at Christo’s process, from the inception through to the completion of his latest large-scale art installation, a dahlia-yellow floating walkway atop Italy’s Lake Iseo that was eventually experienced by over 1.2 million people.
The film takes the viewer on an intimate journey into Christo’s world amid mounting madness — from complex dealings between art and state politics to engineering challenges, logistical nightmares, and the sheer force of Mother Nature. Captured through breathtaking aerial views and fly-on-the-wall camerawork, we watch the artist’s vision unfold, and get to know the man chasing it.
“The artist’s forceful character does battle with technology, bureaucracy, corruption and the elements, resulting in an installation of stunning beauty and a documentary that delights in capturing the act of creation.” Jay Weissberg, Variety
The film is being shown at 7pm (with doors opening at 6:30) and admission is $8. For more information, to view the trailer, or to purchase advance tickets, visit www.sierratheaters.com
