A new documentary called Man On Wire is about a French man named Phillippe Petit, a tight-wire walker, who walked on a wire tethered between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974  his act up for an hour without the aid of a safety net, until the police arrested him. His act of daring and defiance earned the dubious distinction of being the “artistic crime of the century.” Watch the trailer to get a glimpse of a man who really does live on the edge.
