PLACA Cinelatte presents: Circo
105 Link Hall
Circo Directed by Aaron Schoc (2010) Gorgeously filmed along the back roads of rural Mexico, CIRCO follows the Ponce family's hardscrabble circus as it struggles to stay together despite mounting debt, dwindling audiences, and a simmering family conflict. Tino, the ringmaster, is driven by his dream to lead his parents' circus to success and corrals the energy of his whole family, including his four young children, towards this singular goal. But his wife Ivonne is determined to make a change. Feeling exploited by her in-laws, she longs to return to her kids a childhood lost to laboring in the circus. Please join us for a good documentary! Everybody is welcome!
