The Shukar Collective Project
The film follows, in a challenging and unconventional visual style, the coming together and the evolution of the Shukar Collective phenomenon. Consequently, the founding members of the dancing bears group Shukar, Napoleon (43, vocal and barrel percussion performer), Tamango (67, vocal and spoon special effects performer), Classic (29, vocal and percussion performer) as well as those who discovered them: DJ Vasile, Matze, Vlaicu Golcea, Dan Handrabur are talking for the first time about the rising and the breaking up of the group.
The film tells the story of one of the oldest circus families in Romania and, mainly, the story of some of the oldest circus performers still alive, descendants of the Globus Circus founder, Toma Zdebschi. Mina is 75 years old and Carol is 84. They have a daughter, two grandchildren and a great-granddaughter, who is 7 years old. Carol is the son of Toma Zdebschi, one of Romania’s first travelling circus owners. Mina and Carol retired and they are living in Bucharest, in a house in Rahova district. In their backyard, one can still see their first wagon, the one they used to live in during their "circus life". Every year, on the 29th of August, family and friends gather together in that Rahova backyard and celebrate Carol’s birthday.
