Circus without Borders - The story of Artcirq and Kalabante

Dutch premiere

A documentary about two acrobats, who try to bring hope and change through circus performance.
Synopsis: Circus without borders is a documentary about Guillaume Saladin and Yamoussa Bangoura, two world-class acrobats that share the same dream: to use circus to bring hope and change to their struggling communities. The story takes place in the Canadian Arctic and Guinea, West Africa, where they help Inuit and Guinean youth confront heavy subjects like like suicide and depression. Because this is done using magical circus performances that leave the viewer wanting more, it is a film full of hope and tenderness.
