The Tightrope
The Tightrope

Documentarian Nuria Ibáñez follows an amateur family circus as they tour around the Mexican countryside, with a small circus tent and a collection of spoilt animals.

Through this documentary Ibáñez explores the strength of Mexican families and their commitment to circus life, especially in times of scarcity.

New generations clash with traditional beliefs as the challenge of keeping the circus heritage alive is made increasingly difficult by the introduction of external factors and a modern way of life.
