For two brief weeks in May of 1983, Christo and Jeanne-Claude's piece entitled Surrounded Islands blossomed on the waters of Biscayne Bay, Florida. Eleven scrub-pine islands were surrounded by 6.5 million square feet of bright pink fabric. This film documents this process—a three-year struggle for the work of art, and a political drama interwoven with two other projects-in-progress: the wrapping of the Pont Neuf in Paris and the Reichstag in Berlin. This film will be screened timed to the online iteration of the annual Art Basel Miami Beach fair.
