Lorenzo Pisoni

Mill Valley 2016

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, Florida, Woodstock, Berkshire

The director reflects on his unorthodox upbringing in the circus.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
The Pickle Family Circus was founded by a young couple in 1974, paving the way for the New American Circus Movement. Their son Lorenzo became a performer from a young age. Now an actor, he looks for answers to a lifetime of questions as he explores an unconventional relationship with a father who was also his coach, employer, and clown-act partner. In his compelling personal film, Pisoni captures the spirit, lunacy, daring, and dynamics of growing up in a circus family.
