In the beginning of this extraordinary film, Spartacus (age 13) and his sister Cassandra (age 11) are living on the streets with their Romani parents. The situation slowly gets worse over the years, and the French authorities finally step in. The only beacon of hope is a young circus artist named Camille, who steps up and assumes the role of parent and caretaker. Directed by Ioanis Nuguet (France).

The PuSh Film Series complements the themes and ideas of the PuSh Festival live performance. Enjoy these documentary films to round out your Festival experience. Paired with Vu and L’immédiat.
