ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY

 

Laughter creates happiness, and without feelings of happiness we eventually succumb. Children that live in war-torn regions, or have grown up in them, often do not have a lot to laugh about. Or is that just an assumption? This movie follows two extraordinary human be­ings that travel to war zones as clowns to, at least for a short period of time, distract those living there from their post-war trauma and sor­row. In the pro­cess, they build bridges, cross borders and push themselves to their own limits. Parallel to the story of the two artists, that leads us through the film like a thread, we immerse ourselves into the world and culture of the child­ren living in those regions. Be­sides the visits of the clowns, we view through the eyes of children the cosmos in which the locals live and the film obser­ves moving, deeply honest and also funny stories from the children and their en­vironment. Finally the film moves to one point where the perspecti­ves melt together, where tragedy meets humour in a highly sensitive manner.
