GISELLE : THE WALKING LANDSCAPE

Synopsis

Giselle: The Walking Landscape" pays tribute to the people behind the curtains. The film follows the journey of a 85 feet wide by 45 feet high painting, a backdrop for the first act of the ballet Giselle by Adolphe Adam. The film follows 24 key grips hauling the painting, just like their elders did, from the Ateliers Berthier where it was conceived by three painters during six weeks, to the stage of the Opera Garnier where it is dressed.
