Synopsis

Man on Wire is a documentary about Phillipe Petit, who famously performed on a high-wire between the Twin Towers (then the tallest structure in the world) in the 1970s. The documentary uses a combination of archive footage, interviews and dramatic recreations to show the development of his ambition and the gathering momentum of his dream, as well as the rigorous planning involved in such a high-risk venture, as the Towers simultaneously start to take shape in the background. An insight into an amazing heist-like feat told from the ground up.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
