Man on Wire, with Philippe Petit
Meet French highwire artist, Philippe Petit, who accomplished the impossible in 1974 when he navigated a single wire between the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Through interviews, re-creations, archival footage, and haunting images of the now-gone towers, this stunning documentary (Dir. James Marsh) offers a provocative look at a man driven to achieve the impossible. In addition to an Oscar, MAN ON WIRE won Producers' Guild, Sundance and BAFTA awards.

Moderator: Reeves Lehmann, Chairman, Film, Video and Animation Department, SVA
This event is brought to you by NYU's Center for Communication, The School of Visual Arts, and the Mayor's Office for Film, Theatre & Broadcasting.

See you there!
