Our beloved Bay Area is changing before our eyes and we are fortunate to have great local filmmakers documenting those changes and all the things that make our cities unique and wondrous. The films take us from an Oakland circus school across Treasure Island up Oak & Page Street thru The Columbarium to the Mission and then over to Colma. The people who make up these great cities are documented and given a voice. -JM - Presented by KQED’s Truly CA

Description

Balancing Act tells the story of DeMarcello Funes, a 22-year-old emerging circus performer. But Funes is no ordinary clown: he teaches a forgotten history of African American performance and its ties to the circus arts.
