TODO WIRE UP

A Vietnamese boy wearing a loincloth uses a large pestle & mortar whilst an old man sat behind him works on a crossbow.

About Travelling Circus

Director Viet Linh tells the bittersweet story of a small traveling circus from Hanoi stopping in an impoverished village in Vietnam’s central highlands. Through the eyes of a village youngster, we witness the magic of the circus and the naïve hope that illusion can be transformed into reality.

Screening as part of the Star Nhà Ease: Vietnamese Cinema season, presenting a captivating collection of Vietnamese cinematic treasures. Co-curated by Cường Minh Bá Phạm, Esther Johnson and Tuyết Vân Huỳnh, this season is both a celebration and introduction of Vietnamese cinema to UK audiences.
