Walking on Water
This documentary does far more than detail the intense mechanics and political maneuvering of bringing Christo’s vision into being. It is an unfiltered look into the soul of an artist whose passions are as elemental as the waters and weather that constantly challenge the project.

Renowned Dutch keyboard player (and period instrument advocate) Gustav Leonhardt portrays Johann Sebastian Bach in this minimalist but moving film that looks at the last 27 years in the composer’s life through the eyes of his wife. Straub-Huillet’s classic is far from a traditional biopic and costume drama; for one thing, all the music in it was performed and recorded live, often in single takes.
