Circo

This dazzling documentary pulls back the curtain on the dying art of the Mexican traveling circus. By focussing entirely on the 10-member Ponce family and their struggling Gran Circo Mexico, the film becomes a very personal affair. We get to know the family, watch their backbreaking labors and marvel at the sincerity of their old-school art form. A beautiful chronicle of the vagabond lifestyle and its questionable continuance in the 21 st century. In Spanish with English subtitles. 75 minutes
