Netflix documentary looks at the career of Cai Guo-Qiang
A documentary produced by Netflix to be released widely in October looks at the career of the Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang. The film is titled _Sky Ladder _after a monumental 2015 work of the same name, in which Cai ignited a 1,650 ft. ladder of fireworks that reached into the sky above Huiyu Island Harbour in Quanzhou. 'I want to connect the earth to the universe,' Cai Guo-Qiang says partway through the film. It will become available on streaming devices on 14 October.
