DocFest: WITHOUT A NET
WITHOUT A NET
Kelly J. Richardson, 60 min, US/Brazil
Djeferson, Bárbara, Rayana and Platini live in a drug-controlled slum in Rio. Their families are struggling, their homes are unstable, and everyone they know has dropped out of school. When a circus tent suddenly appears in a nearby parking lot, they decide to take a chance. After learning trapeze, acrobatics, juggling, and contortion, they audition, rehearse, and wait for the curtains to part on opening night. Without a Net celebrates the spirit of circus and the perseverance and resilience of youth.
