CIRCUS DREAMS                                80MIN

This vibrant documentary examines the lives of a dynamic
group of 12 to 18 year olds performing in Circus Smirkus, the
only traveling youth circus in the United States. It tells the
real life story of how these unusually talented teenagers
surmount tremendous obstacles to keep their circus from
closing forever. By delving into the young performers’
passion for the ancient circus arts, the documentary also
explores how it feels to be a teenager today.  An inspiring
testament to the power of youthful dreams, CIRCUS
DREAMS is a treat for the whole family.
Appropriate for All Ages


Directed and Produced by Signe Taylor

ORANGE HANGOVER                        55MIN

"What happens when a nation split along ethnic,
linguistic, and religious lines finds itself faced with a
political disappointment   of staggering   proportions?

This  is the  question  posed  by Masha  Shpolberg’s
film  "Orange Hangover" which  examines the after
effects of the 2005 Orange Revolution in Ukraine. Shot
in the culturally diverse city of Odessa on the eve of the
2010 elections, the film  follows  the   director’s   
personal   quest  to   understand   the   issues  at  
stake   and   the   potential  paths  to   recovery."


Directed and Produced by Masha Shpolberg
