A walk on the clouds

On august 7, 1974 the French Phillipe Petit took a 45 minute walk on the clouds in between the World Trade Center Towers in New York. The clouds were not so much clouds, but more of a steel cable rigged between the two towers. This, of course, wasn’t entirely legal.

In 2008 James Marsch, directed the  documentary “Man on wire”, which shows in an impressive way how Phillipe plans and carries out his highwire walk.  A must-see, if you ask me.
