Guantanamo Circus (2013)
27min · Documentary, Short, Adventure · 28 October 2013
A hardy troupe of circus performers is cleared by the FBI, CIA, Homeland Security and the Pentagon in order to take their act to the home of one of the most notorious prisons in the world, Guantanamo Bay Cuba. These singers, dancers, jugglers, magicians, aerialists and musicians have no idea what awaits them when they arrive at a place everyone has heard of but very few know much about. They soon discover things are not quite what they assumed. During processing a soldier tells them 'Guantanamo Bay, it's a great place to raise your kids.' They were entering a giant time capsule like a surreal, small town right out of the 'Twilight Zone' that desperately needed an infusion of positive energy.
