Man on Wire

This is an extraordinary film of on man's magnificent obsession to walk on a wire between the World Trade Towers. It is especially poignant because of the history of these buildings. 2008 ~ 100 minutes
Man on Wire

Philippe Petit captured the world's attention in 1974 when he successfully walked across a high wire between New York's Twin Towers. This documentary explores the preparations that went into the stunt as well as the event and its aftermath. Obsessed with the towers even before they were fully constructed, Petit sneaked into the buildings several times to determine the equipment he needed to accomplish his daring feat.

This is a must view. Not out in DVD yet.
