The Juggler


Brazil | 11 | Biography | 2018 | Short Film (Animation) | English

An animated documentary about street jugglers who add colour to the monotonous day of urban life. The sound layer presents us with testimonies of street clowns and jugglers while a narrative in animation draws the daily life of a particular character. First came the research, followed by the interviews, which from the beginning were already planned to enter only the sound layer of the film. After emerging in the world of jugglers, I created a script for the animation, with the purpose of telling in a playful way the story of a day in the life of a street juggler. I have been fascinated by the circus since I was a child and I love it especially when I see its colors invade a medium that is not ready to receive them, but still receives them. The city closes in a constant gray, and art, accompanied by love, brings relief and lightness to an insistently oppressive environment.

Original Language

একটি অ্যানিমেটেড চলচিত্র রাস্তার বাজিকরদের নিয়ে যারা একঘেয়ে জীবনে রঙ ঢেলে দেয়। এখানে প্রতিটি শব্দের স্তরগুলো আমাদের সাক্ষ্য দেয় যে এই অ্যানিমেটেড চলচিত্রটি একটি নির্দিষ্ট চরত্রেরই আখ্যান। প্রথমে গবেষণা ক্ষেত্রে আসা হয় সাক্ষাৎকারের মাধ্যমে পরিচালিত হয়ে, যা চলচিত্রের শুরু থেকেই ঠিক করা ছিল যে শব্দের স্তরে প্রবেশ করার। বাজিকরদের রাজ্যে প্রবেশ করে আমি অ্যানিমেশনের মাধ্যমে একটি স্ক্রিপ্ট তৈরী করি যার উদ্দেশ্যই থাকে বাজিকরদের জীবনকাহিনী বলার।
