On August 7th 1974, a young Frenchman named Philippe Petit stepped out on a wire illegally rigged between New York’s twin towers, then the worldí¢â‚¬â„¢s tallest buildings. After nearly an hour dancing on the wire, he was arrested, taken for psychological evaluation, and brought to jail before he was finally released. James Marshí¢â‚¬â„¢s documentary brings Petití¢â‚¬â„¢s extraordinary adventure to life through the testimony of Philippe himself, and some of the co-conspirators who helped him create the unique and magnificent spectacle that became known as í¢â‚¬Å“the artistic crime of the century.í¢â‚¬
