Directed by Pedro Crispim | Sound by PULSAR studios

Fiction | 15 min | POR

“Clowns” is a short-film about a love triangle between two clowns and an equilibrist. This triangle’s dynamics interweaves passions, wills and betrayals, acclimated both in an artificial game of masks and in an emotional primitivism. But more than a moral or immoral tale, this short-film is an
exploration on obsession, on the destructive powers degenerated when passionate emotions are threatened. The morality might be ambiguous, but jealousy is a big defect."
