CIRCUS WITHOUT BORDERS is an enlightening tale of two circus troupes from opposite ends of the globe who converge to realize a common dream. Using circus arts as a means of self-expression and cultural exchange, the two circuses -- Artcirq in the Canadian Arctic and Kalabante in West Africa -- give youth in two of the world’s most challenged communities the tools to travel beyond their borders and succeed. The film is a beautiful performance piece; a portal into two remote cultures; and an inspiring story of joy and heartbreak with universal relevance. Guillaume and Yamoussa, two world-class acrobats from remote corners of the globe, share the same dream: to bring hope and change to their struggling communities through circus. Their dream unfolds in the Canadian Arctic and Guinea, West Africa where they help Inuit and Guinean youth achieve unimaginable success, overcoming suicide, poverty and despair.
