She documents the journey we took to prepare for one of the biggest shows of our lives. The documentary vividly portrays the passion, perseverance and hard work, our young artists displayed as they brought their talents to the world, marvelling the likes of 50 000 spectators, for a once-in-a-lifetime event with the Roger Federer Foundation.

An energetic and spirited film, which finds a middle-ground between contemporary circus and the hardships of African reality, balancing between ongoing struggles and the magic of performing arts – we dive into an original and powerful journey, at the heart of one of the world’s most captivating social circuses.

The documentary is only available to view in France and Monaco if you subscribe to CanalPlus. If you are outside of France you will need to add a VPN plug-in and then you can subscribe to CanalPlus.
