Man On Wire.

The Dustbowl team recently had the chance to watch this documentary and we absolutely loved it. Directed by James Marsh, Man on Wire won this year’s Oscar for Best Documentary. The story follows Philippe Petit and his seemingly impossible dream of traversing a wire between the newly built Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. The tension looms as an international entourage comes together to help one man fulfill his destiny. The cinematography gives the audience a first-hand account of what a wire walker goes through, intertwining the careful arrangement of every detail with the suspenseful (and illegal) execution of the scheme in 1974. 2008’s Man On Wire kept us on edge as Philippe gracefully stepped from tangible stability to unstable territory.
