Duffy's Irish Circus

2006 PG

Filmmaker Gabriel Bellman goes on the road with an Irish circus that's been in existence for more than 200 years, capturing the magic and fantasy of David Duffy's one-ring traveling show, which has been run by seven generations of the family. With an eye toward the lifestyle and traditions of the entertainers, Bellman examines links between the circus's longtime customs and the lives of today's performance artists.
