One Word
Shalako Gordon, Brooklyn NY, USA. Narrative Short, 15:38

One Word - Sometimes the unsaid, should remain that way.

Chad Taylor, Los Angeles CA, USA. Documentary Feature, 60:00

In his directorial debut Mad Chad Taylor, the renowned Venice Beach chainsaw Juggler, has created a one of a kind documentary that goes deep inside the world of street performing. Amid rare footage of the most shocking and inspired street acts from around the world, one performer after another pulls back the makeshift curtain. Their acts are astonishing; their stories, more amazing still.

Here is the tightrope walker, the razor blade muncher, the sidewalk samurai. Meet The Fireman who lost his teeth to his fire-eating act, and the Calypso Tumbler who's buying up real estate in the Caribbean. This is the human condition at its most freakishly wonderful.

A must-see for anyone who has ever been entertained by a street performer.
Sam Raimi
