I really loved this great documentary, and really appreciate the opportunity to view it. It has so many implications for the importance of art in our lives in contrast to the sterile environment of business and real estate, how it brought a community together, and how once majestic old, but decayed buildings can be given new life. All this layered with the colorful personalities of the artists themselves and their amazing talent, a clear social message comes through to me: we need art and beauty and music in our lives as much as, if not more than a roof over our heads. Interestingly, some of the buildings from which the squatting performers were evicted are still vacant- a sign of the economic times. Ms. Smyth's DYI approach brilliantly captured the spirit of the troupe members, their frustrations and triumphs, and their magical performances that drew huge crowds. I hope the Invisible Circus lives continues to flourish and entertain for ages to come!
