Joy (18+)

Russia, 2020, colour, 63 min.
Director: Daria Slyusarenko
"Joy" is a travelling circus with simple routines: to dismantle and assemble the star-painted tent, to give performances, and to move from town to town. Tamers of lynxes and parrots quarrel over every little thing, and Valera the clown always performs alone... Until one day a new partner joins him, Yana the clowness. Now they dream of conquering the circus world together.
