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
"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."
