IT’S A SERIOUS BUSINESS BEING FUNNY
A seasoned professional clown on the eve of retirement reflects on a lifetime of adoration & rejection, humour & heartbreak. Clown is a short, stylised documentary delving into the hidden customs & quirks of the clowning community to tell the story of a life spent trying to make people laugh.
Clown started its film festival run in early 2021 and has so far screened at over twenty international festivals across Europe & North America. The film was a finalist in competition at Bolton, Liverpool, Edinburgh Docu-fest & Docs Ireland. It won ‘Best Documentary’ at the Bafta-qualifying Norwich Film Festival and The South London Film Festival.
