"Peter Brook: The Tightrope," a film about Tony Award-winning director Peter Brook's acting exercise entitled "The Tightrope," opens Jan. 31 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

Directed by Simon Brook, who co-wrote the film with his father Peter (A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade), the 83-minute film will screen through Feb. 6.

Peter Brook will be on hand at 7 PM and 9:15 PM screenings Jan. 31 and Feb. 1.

Here's how the film is billed: "Peter Brook is one of the world's most respected and revolutionary directors of contemporary theatre. To help his actors achieve extraordinary performances, he has a special exercise, called 'the Tightrope,' which evolved over decades of experimentation and practice into a process of transformation that makes theatre real and new for actor and audience alike. In this quietly eloquent and unique film, director Simon Brook — Peter's son — reveals how the Tightrope works its dramatic alchemy."

"Peter Brook: The Tightrope" also features Hayley Carmichael, Jos Houben, Gauderic Kaiser, Micha Lescot and Marcello Magni.
