Alan Plotkin Documentaries

Gatto DocumentaryI just bought Alan Plotkin’s documentary about the world’s greatest juggler, Anthony Gatto. I knew Anthony was good at a very young age, but I didn’t know he was performing as a professional at the age of 11. I also learned that Anthony gave up juggling for one or two years to start a landscaping business in his twenties. He said no one gave him applause when he was digging a hole to plant a tree. Alan Plotkin has also produced documentaries about The Flying Karamazov Brothers, The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, Esther’s Follies and others. There is a whole universe that is being captured by filmmakers like Plotkin. I hope to catch just a glimpse.
