Around the World with The Squidling Brothers
Directed by Matthew Broomfield, Philadelphia, PA, 66:40, World Premiere!

In January 2012 two brothers embark on a journey around the world presenting their show; The Squidling Brothers, an International Circus Sideshow with a cast of freaks, sword swallowers, pain proof fakirs and fire eaters. This story is as fast as it is full of endlessness. A look into the life of the modern traveling sideshow presenting never before seen stunts setting out to share the universal message of excitement and humor that transcend language and social barriers. Shot on location in Germany, The Netherlands, Slovenia, Switzerland, Croatia, Austria, India and Japan. This film tells the story of a group of extremely talented and strange entertainers on the road risking their lives for entertainment. At times not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach, seen through the eyes of the performers who lived it every day, a shining example of life on the road and what it means to be a freak.
