The Gates Comes to Philbrook

What did it take to install 7,503 saffron fabric gates in Central Park?  In 2005 the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude conquered red tape, permits, and permissions to bring the “golden river” to the people of New York City for 16 days.  Discover the struggles and triumphs of their 26-year journey in this documentary by the renowned filmmakers Antonio Ferrera and the Maysles brothers.  Then stick around after to meet the artists in a Q &A.  The film is 97 minutes, not rated, and is the recipient of the Peabody Award.
