Man on Wire
This documentary explores Philippe Petit's preparations for historically walking across a high wire between New York's Twin Towers.
August 7, 1974: A young French man named Philippe Petit stepped out on a wire suspended between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. He danced on this wire for an hour with no safety net before he was arrested for what has become to be known as the "artistic crime of the century."
This film is a celebration of human achievement; it soars with the promise that we are shackled to the ground only by lack of imagination and will.
