A look at life in the regions surrounding the deep Sierra del COBRE in the north of MEXICO.
The documentary was filmed in August/September 2006 during the production of COCHOCHI: an award-winning Mexican movie shot in the Sierra TARAHUMARA.
”Circus is an unique form of live performance in which there are no rules. The integration of new ideas or artistic expressions is essential in order to create good contemporary work and to stimulate emotions. I believe that essence of all good work is to be found in the performance, in the phisicality, originality and inventiveness, poetry and humor. I enjoy the clash of cultures. I use rythm/fast beats in all my work alongside layers of imagery and strong use of contrast to switch emotions, like a film score.”
