The Traveling Circus

Gánh Xiếc Rong

Directed by Việt Linh
Vietnam, 1988


Tells the bittersweet story of a small traveling circus from Hanoi stopping in an impoverished ethnic minority 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.
