"Catching Dreams" Brian Flint was making a living in the financial industry when he decided in his mid-30s to run away to the circus. He became a professional trapeze artist and was hired by Cirque du Soleil at age 45. Brian's identical twin brother, Kevin, decided to make a film about his brother's adventures, "Catching Dreams." It's playing this weekend as part of the Squaw Valley Institute lecture and film series. We'll talk with the brothers about the film.
