Cinema Circus

Future Actress Is Frank About Quality

Each week this summer, until this Wednesday, which is the last, the folks at Cinema Circus show a series of short films at the Chilmark Community Center. The films begin at 6 p.m. but at 5 p.m. the circus, complete with jugglers, face painters, stilt walkers, food and music, gets underway.

An advanced screening of the films is arranged with a young Island cineaste, plucked from the age bracket of the target audience. In a world with few certainties, the kid critic is the critic to trust.
