(The true story that inspired Robert Zemeckis from “The Walk”)
On the morning of August 7th, 1974, a little more than a year after the WTC opened, Philippe Petit, a quarter of a mile in the sky, begin a tight rope walk across the 130-foot gap separating the North & South World Trade Center Towers. The walk, made during the deepest part of the early 1970’s recession, marked a turning point for both the Twin Towers and New York City. This short documentary clip shows original news footage of the event and interviews the people who were there that day.

In 2012, before White was a student at UT Austin, he made a 14-minute, poorly produced video at his home that shows Kendrex White and his classmates reenacting the murder of white people by Haitian political figure Dutty Boukman.
