Joe Goes To Serbia
It's the fourth summer in a row that Josef Arone from San Francisco comes to Serbia. He makes street-performances as Joe Mama the Clown and from July until September, over the countryside and around the capital - from the trumpet festival to the war zone - he is on a mission to spread joy. Joe parties wherever he can, but his idea of joy is more profound. He wants to share it, especially in the areas where people forgot it. Enter the world where a stranger is just a friend that you have not met yet!
