I would have loved to get to New York this month to take my kids to the International Children’s Film Festival. Unfortunately, it’s not going to happen. But poking around on the web and looking at the scheduled films I noticed that the main documentary at this year’s festival, Circus School, was available for free in its entirety at Snag Films. That inspired me to post it here along with another old favorite, Inside John Lennon, which you can also find at Snag.
Circus School is a Chinese news documentary exploring the grueling training of young acrobats. The Lennon movie is a refreshing, captivating portrayal told in the words of the people who knew him best.
If you can get to New York, the International Children’s Film Festival runs from through March 15. If you can’t you can certainly get to Snag Films where you’ll find lots more documentaries all available for free viewing.
