Abstract:

San Francisco has its Golden Gate and Florence has its Ponte Vecchio, and now Redding, California, has its Sundial, the first bridge designed in America by the world-renowned architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava. Narrated by actress Jill Eikenberry ("LA Law"), this beautifully made program not only documents the process of turning this brilliant architect's vision into a one-of-a-kind bridge, but also has the courage to ask, is the river crossing a project of pride or genius or folly? Like other grand works of public art, the Sundial Bridge at the Turtle Bay Exploration Park, although considered by most an architectural wonder, has generated some opposition. It is in presenting this balance of opinions this documentary convincingly proves how this bridge celebrates human creativity and ingenuity. Here we not only learn about the history of this area, which included much resource extraction, and played an important role in the decision of making this an environmentally sensitive bridge, but also we get to view behind the scenes how construction crews overcame difficulties associated with creating what is now considered an engineering marvel.
