"Man on Wire" Philippe Petit visits ground zero...
director: Rudolph Herzog
Editor: Thorsten Essig

Portrait of the man who walked from one tower of the World Trade Center to the other on a wire no thicker than a human thumb. Shot in 2001, this film predates the Oscar winner MAN ON WIRE. It was filmed on location in New York with Philippe Petit. A personal film, since Rudolph Herzog was once his assistant.
