Directed by Simon Brook | 2012

With Peter Brook, Hayley Carmichael, Jos Houben, Micha Lescot, Marcello Magni

"…compact and inspiring… a seamless, up-close-and-personal parcel that unspools like a breezy masterclass."
—ScreenDaily

Legendary theater director Peter Brook—whose 1987 magnum opus production of The Mahabharata inaugurated the BAM Majestic Theater (now the BAM Harvey Theater)—offers a rare glimpse into his creative process in this engaging behind-the-scenes documentary. Using five carefully concealed cameras, Brook’s son Simon captures his father, alternately playful and focused, as he leads a group of actors through an exercise he’s dubbed “The Tightrope”—in which they must traverse an imaginary high wire with the conviction of a real tightrope walker.

Peter Brook: The Tightrope, from First Run Features, opens January 31 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
