1/25/08: Sundance - Man on Wire
Salt Lake City, UT – Friday on RadioWest we're talking about an extraordinary film at the Sundance Film Festival. It's the adventure of Philippe Petit, who in 1974 managed to rig a cable on the very top of the World Trade Center and walk across the two towers. This was illegal mind you, and the film is more than a documentary. It's also been described as a kind of bank robbery film. It's also a very beautiful portrait of this strange obsession that is framed by death.
