A very enjoyable little film. It simply shows a bit of the preparation for and then the unfurling of the very impressive artwork. Golfers down the valley periodically give their opinion. Although it seems as though there is not much here, it's the real thing as it happened: the artists, the crew, the work. All of the personalities involved are on display; the reactions of the construction workers are particularly enjoyable.

Who would have thought to do something like this? Only Christo+ Jeanne!
