Summary

Directors Albert and David Maysles explore the concept and implementation of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's 1991 art project The Umbrellas. At a cost of more than £16million they installed yellow umbrellas across California and blue ones in Japan's Ibaraki prefecture. The film discovers the mixed reactions of locals to the work, and is dedicated to the tourist in California and the construction worker in Japan who died as a result of the installation.
