A Magic Film : The Butterfly Circus

Stop and Watch: The Butterfly Circus

By Larry Ray / The Rag Blog / September 22, 2009

This is not my usual post. This is something very special I want to share with you. Something, I feel, that is very needed in the shrillness of our times. It will take 20 minutes of your time, and it will, I can almost certainly promise, give you a refreshed view of hope and accomplishment.

This is a magnificently produced short film that is magic. It will grab your soul and hold it up to the light for a few moments… and might even recharge it a little.

“At the height of the Great Depression, the showman of a renowned circus leads his troupe through the devastated American landscape, lifting the spirits of audiences along the way. During their travels they discover a man without limbs at a carnival sideshow, but after an intriguing encounter with the showman he becomes driven to hope against everything he has ever believed.”

I hope you will watch this amazing short film. It has the quality of a feature film, and if you have a good monitor you may watch it in high quality full screen. Your ticket is RIGHT HERE… click the familiar “Play” diamond!
