At the Circus! Blogathon

Respeitável público! 2016 é um ano de grandes conquistas para esta blogueira que vos escreve. Comecei a escrever posts bilíngues e me orgulhei de ter criado os infográficos deste artigo sobre Alberto Cavalcanti. E agora é hora de dar mais um grande passo.

Ladies and gentlemen of the audience! 2016 is a great year in blogging for me. I started writing bilingual posts and was particularly proud of the infographics I created for this article about Alberto Cavalcanti. And now it's time for another big step.

Este blog sobrevive graças às blogagens coletivas, e chegou a hora de realizar um sonho, que já esteve até entre minhas resoluções de ano novo: ser hostess de uma blogagem coletiva. E a ideia do tema veio quando eu via “O Circo” (1943), estrelado por Cantinflas, que nada mais é que um remake mexicano do filme de 1928 de Charles Chaplin.

This humble blog survives thanks to blogathons, and now it's time for me to accomplish a dream that once was among my New Year's resolutions: host my own blogathon. The idea for the theme came when I was watching “El Circo” (1943), starring Cantinflas. This film is the Mexican remake of the 1928 famous Chaplin film.
Abram espaço no picadeiro para At the Circus Blogathon, idealizada por mim e pela querida Summer do blog Serendipitous Anachronisms, umas das blogueiras que mais gosto de ler e de quem me aproximei recentemente. Summer topou minha ideia e estamos juntas neste circo!

Open space in the arena for the At the Circus Blogathon, hosted by me and by dear Summer from the blog Serendipitous Anachronisms! Summer is one of my favorite bloggers and one that I got to know better in the last year or so. Summer liked my idea and now we are together in this circus!

As regras para ser admitido no show são simples:

The rules to be admitted to the show are simple:

Escreva posts relacionados ao maravilhoso mundo do circo! A ação do filme pode se passar toda no circo, ou apenas uma parte dela. Não temos preconceitos: circos itinerantes e freak shows também são bem-vindos!

Write posts about the wonderful world of circus! The film may be set in the circus in its entirety or only have a scene in a circus. We have no prejudice: carnivals and freak shows are also welcome!

Sem limite de data: escreva sobre filmes feitos em qualquer época.

No limits of date: write about movies made in any era.

Sem limite geográfico: escreva sobre filmes feitos em qualquer país (eu estou pensando em você, “A Estrada da Vida”).

No geographic limit: write about movies made in any country (I’m looking at you, “La Strada”).
Não aceitamos duplicatas. Cada mágico deve fazer um truque diferente do outro, certo?

No duplicates. Each magician must perform a different trick to be accepted in our circus, OK?

Sem posts reciclados: só conteúdo novo. Você quer apresentar um número inédito para a plateia, certo?

No recycled posts, only new content. You want to present a new number to the audience, right?

Comente aqui ou deixe no Twitter (@startspreading / @kitschmeonce) o tema de sua escolha.

This sounds delightful! Would Lili (1953) with Leslie Caron work?

Quiggy said...

I was going to do a review of "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" (1988) for my week long tribute to horror at Halloween time on my blog. But now I think I'll pick a different movie and reserve KKFOS for this blogathon.

Joe Thompson said...

Hi Lê. Great idea for a blogathon. I would like to write about Charlie Chaplin's unfinished movie "The Professor" (192?). He operates a flea circus.

Amanda Garrett said...

I would like to write about Susan Lenox (Her Fall and Rise) in which Garbo joins the circus.

Hi...I have posted on Serendipitous Anachronisms but will post here too - does Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away count? If so, could I do that? If not, I'll find something else. Looking forward to this Blogathon!

Hey Le-

We have one change, Weegie Midget is covering The Walk (2015), instead of Madgascar 3.


Amanda Garrett said...

I'm a bit earlier, my post for Old Hollywood Films on Susan Lenox (Her Fall and Rise) is ready to go:


Thanks for hosting.

The Metzinger Sisters said...

Thank you for the update Le. I was planning on writing about THe Greatest Show on Earth over the weekend, and since I am in a writing mood I will probably send you the link early regardless. Just let me know whenever you have the Circus Blogathon up and running. :-) - Constance ( Silver Scenes )
