CHRISTO IN PARIS by Albert Maysles, USA, 1990, 58'
Winner of the Grand Prize at the Amsterdam Film Festival and Best Cinematography at the Sundance Film Festival, "Christo in Paris" explores Christo's escape from Bulgaria, his early years as a struggling artist, his romance with Jeanne-Claude and the fulfillment of a ten-year obsession: the wrapping of the Pont-Neuf in Paris.
MUR, MURS by Agnès Varda, France, 1981, 90'
Murals in Los Angeles: those who paint them and those who look at them… The capital of cinematic illusion reveals its real self through its walls, painted in screaming colors. The art of the murals bears witness to the diversity and the anxieties of a city populated by cars and an alienated population.
