In this video companion to the Independent Lens documentary, Circo, members of the band Calexico, Joey Burns and John Convertino, describe the creative process behind scoring the film, including finding a musical voice for each personality onscreen. Also featured in the video is a peformance at the Tucson premiere of the film.

The Ponce family's hardscrabble circus has lived and performed on the back roads of Mexico since the 19th century. But can their way of life survive into the 21st century? Circo intimately portrays the Ponce family circus as it struggles to make a living off its artistry, sweat and wit against the backdrop of Mexico's collapsing rural economy.
