Men on the Road

Poland, 1961 (MIFF 1963)

Director: Kasimierz Karabasz

This documentary film, gaining by understatement, is a study of a modest travelling circus - the life without the glamour. The photography is thoroughly telling and the film has a hauntingly grey, rather sad air to it. Award: St. Finbarr Statuette, Cork Festival.
