Mill Valley 2016
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.
