Man on Wire
Friday, February 20, 2009
Philippe Petit's unauthorized walk on a high wire between the World Trade Center towers transfixed the world in 1974. The Oscar-nominated documentary "Man on Wire" depicts how an acrobat and a rag-tag team of friends pulled off this extraordinary feat. Kurt visits the site of the walk (now Ground Zero) with Petit and director James Marsh.
