Movie: Man on Wire

In addition to being an interesting documentary about the amazing 1974 stunt of wirewalker Philippe Petit, there is footage of the twin towers being built and many views inside them.

This film gives the viewer a good sense of the massive size of these towers and helps one understand that the "official story" of steel melting all of that is patently silly.

Philippe Petit captured the world's attention in 1974 when he successfully walked across a high wire between New York's Twin Towers.

This Oscar winner for Best Documentary explores the preparations that went into the stunt as well as the event and its aftermath.

Obsessed with the towers even before they were fully constructed, Petit sneaked into the buildings several times to determine the equipment he needed to accomplish his daring feat.
