Man on Wire

Sunday 2nd November 5:00 PM


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 in 1974, what some consider, "the artistic crime of the century."

"At the heart of it all, an ode to the free spirit, a courageous if quite possibly mad individual and the strange beauty of buildings that now represent something entirely different. A well-deserved prizewinner at Sundance this year." TONY SULLIVAN, EYE FOR FILM

"The wonder and awe the film generates isn't so much the filmmaker's genius though director James Marsh's talents aren't in doubt - he's crafted and constructed a fine documentary - it's the archive and stock footage and subject matter that leaves one breathless." DYLAN MATTHEW, EDINBURGHGUIDE.COM
