Luis & I

NEW DOCS

After a lifetime of performing death-defying stunts as one half of a father-son circus act, an aging Luis continues to live life under the big top—although with far less fanfare, precision, and accuracy than in days past. The former human cannonball now works to capture the laughs of circus goers rather than the oohs and ahhs reserved for the over-the-top spectacles he once helped make famous. Using audio recordings, photos, and home movies, Luis & I gently weaves together a palpable story of family, triumph, and love. TD
