  • FOR A MOMENT YOU FLY: THE BIG APPLE CIRCUS - For a moment you fly: The Big Apple Circus is a portrait of a unique one-ring alternative circus in New York City. Through dynamic camera work and editing, Blumberg conveys the enthusiasm of the performers and the virtuosity of their performances. The story of this unconventional circus is told through interviews with the circus performers, conducted by Blumberg in his relaxed, conversational style. This is an informal portrait of a circus that emphasizes Òhuman-sized events as an alternative to the mainstream circus, suggesting an affinity with Blumberg s own Òhuman-sized video as an alternative to mainstream television.
