Screening of "Man on Wire" followed by Q&A with Philippe Petit
Manager: Tim Fox
Management Territory: Worldwide
On August 7, 1974, Philippe Petit accomplished what may be the most astounding "artistic crime" of all time when he walked a high wire illegally stretched between the rooftops of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, crossing eight times over the course of an hour, a quarter mile above the sidewalks of New York City. Man on Wire is the Academy Award-winning 2008 documentary film directed by James Marsh chronicling this amazing feat.
This is a unique opportunity to present a screening of the Academy Award-winning 2008 documentary film . . . , Man on Wire, followed by a discussion and Q&A with the man himself, Philippe Petit.
