Pick of the Day: Circo

A U.S./Mexico co-production, this award-winning documentary (with music by Calexico) follows a family circus as it travels throughout Mexico, struggling to remain solvent in the face of rising expenses and dwindling attendance. It’s rated General, so if you know of any children who harbour dreams of running away to join the circus, you might want to take them. Once they get a glimpse of how hard the youngsters in this family work they’ll likely have a change of heart. 

Circo screens tonight at the RPL Theatre at 7 p.m. Here’s the trailer.
