Documentary Film: Circus Without Borders: Lessons in Using Art to Build a Better Future

Posted on September 24, 2019

“Circus Without Borders” is a documentary film that follows two circus troupes from opposite ends of the globe who converge to realize a common dream. Using circus arts as a means of self-expression and cultural exchange, the two circuses —Artcirq in the Canadian Arctic and Kalabante in West Africa—give youth the tools to travel beyond their borders and succeed. The film is a beautiful performance piece; a portal into two remote cultures; and an inspiring story of joy and heartbreak with universal resonance.
