Truly impressive, and even more so when one considers it was all done with practical effects.  No CGI or motion capture or miniatures or anything like that.

After you've clicked on the link to see how it was done (and now have some idea of what you're looking for), go back and view the clip again.  If you pause the playback at about the 1:12 mark you can see the cables and the device/harness the cinematographer is going to be attached to.  And then, once he's connected in and traversing the floor of the cigar factory, you can again see the cables running out of the building and over the street starting around the 1:30 mark.

I must admit I thought this would be a 'good for its day' type of post but my goodness, that was very well done indeed.
