Video Interview - James Marsh & Phillipe Petit, Man On Wire

James Marsh's doc Man on Wire, about acrobat Phillipe Petit's daring wire walking act between the WTC Towers in 1974, is currently doing gangbusters business for Magnolia Pictures. It averaged a scintillating $24,000 per screen average in its bow of two screens last weekend. It expands for the next two weeks and, while you wait for it to come to a theater near you, check out this interview with its director and subject.
