Synopsis
This feature-length documentary offers an inside look into the workings of a travelling circus. Filmed in 1976, directors Tony Ianzelo and Torben Schioler followed the Royal Brothers´ Circus as they set up their tents and put on their show. Fascinating to watch, the film captures the 24-hour-a-day brand of magic that the circus evokes while revealing the nature of the people who run it.

A ticket to entertainment at the Royal Brothers´ Circus--the only Canadian tent circus. Filmed during a hectic summer season, with the Big Top up, in transit, or being erected, it vividly captures the 24-hour-a-day brand of circus magic and observes both the people and mechanics behind it. Like the circus itself, it hovers between comedy, sentimentality and the grotesque.
