Duration: 78 min

For decades we have run away with the Circus, momentarily fleeing our problems. But few of us have ever given a second thought as to what happens to these artists “off the wire” after they have spent their lives entertaining and inspiring us. This film takes a unique look at a tightly drawn community in Sarasota, Florida, one with a deep value system that seems almost out of place today. With humour and warmth, these biggerthanlife characters are determined to support each other through thick and thin, at a time when they need it most : the end of their careers as Circus performers. When the march of time forces them to step out of the ring, After Circus depicts how these performers move from the glittering spotlight… into the long shadows of the Big Top.
