Bashir, Wire Win Big at Cinema Eye

man-on-wirePhilippe Petit better have a few more acrobatic feats in his arsenal. He famously balanced an Oscar on his chin at the Academy Awards. The man who walked between the Twin Towers got another chance to dazzle when Man on Wire won three prizes at the Cinema Eye Awards in New York. The crowd-pleasing Wirewas recognized in the Outstanding Achievement in Nonfiction Film-making category, as well as production and editing. Vals Im Bashir/Waltz With Bashir doesn’t have any magic tricks, but director Ari Folmanwill no doubt be pleased that his animated documentary won four prizes, including Outstanding Achievement in Direction. The other big winners (in fact, the only other winners) included Werner Herzog’s Encounters at the End of the World and Up the Yangtze, whose director Yung Chang won Outstanding Debut Achievement. The full list after the jump.
