Heart Warming and Engrossing, 22 January 2011
Author: mandy-1 from California

From the opening shots as this small family circus rolls into another town we are struck by how hardworking, courageous and creative they are. As this richly satisfying documentary unfolds we come to care deeply about the Ponce family we get to know through the lens of the single camera and the perspective of director and one man film crew, Aaron Schock.

Schock was there for Q and A at the Palm Springs film festival last week where most of the questions were about what happened next. The answers were as inspiring as the film. If you get a chance to see Circo, don't miss it!
