In 1974, a young Frenchman secretly - and illegally - rigged a tightrope between the Twin Towers. He made eight corssings in an hour, while 100,000 people watched in the streets of New York. In "To Reach The Clouds", Petit recreates his six-and-a-half-year quest to realize his dream. Animated by numerous photographs and Petit's sketches, this text is a serenade to his beloved towers and the unfettered aspiration they expressed.Biografía del autor:
Born into a middle-class French family in 1949, Philippe Petit taught himself magic, juggling and high-wire walking while still a child. At sixteen he began to travel the world as a street juggler. He has performed illegal high-wire walks between the towers of Notre Dame, the twin towers of the World Trade Center, and the northern pylons of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
