Man on Wire

Description
The documentary is a look at tightrope walker Philippe Petit's daring, but illegal, high-wire routine performed between New York City's World Trade Center's twin towers on August 7, 1974. 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.'
