Charlotte Zwerin and Albert and David Maysles' film depicting the construction of Running Fence, artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude's 1976 installation which saw an 18ft-high veiled fence erected along a 24-and-a-half-mile route through the hills of northern California. The film also examines the mixed reception the work received, with some people actively protesting against its construction.
