Timoteo's Fabulous Ragged Circus

  • Chile
Audio Tracks 

The comedian Timoteo is the leader of a cross-dresser circus that has toured through Chile for forty years. Today his advanced age and health are reason for concern regarding the continuity of the show. Small episodes and daily conflicts shape the comedian’s life while he debates between denial of a possible ending and the concrete need to project his circus.
