A remix of “Man on Wire”: This exceptional documentary tells the story of a high-wire walker who in 1974 performed a sort of “anti-terrorist” stunt by sneaking into, setting up and walking a wire between the twin towers of the World Trade Center.
With time, the resonance and symbolism of this daring act, combined with the monumental and tragic destiny of the towers, serves to reflect the enormity of the challenges that lie ahead of us.
The passing from one societal architecture into a new one will be a daring moment from which there is no turning back.
As president-elect Obama takes leadership of a broken nation. He is the Man and we are the Wire.

Suddenly, we stand somewhere between the perception of a God-given right to infinite existence, and the possibility that all may end in just a few decades.
Till then, happy new year! and let it be one of harmony.
