Spartacus & Cassandra Feb. 19th

On Thursday, February 19th, the Bozeman Doc Series presents the Montana premiere of the award winning documentary Spartacus & Cassandra.

Two Roma children are taken in by a young trapeze artist in a circus on the outskirts of Paris. It is a haven of fragile peace for this 13- and 11-year-old brother and sister. Torn between this new destiny offered to them and their parents who live on the street, Spartacus and Cassandra must choose.

Shot in classic observational style, the film world premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews.

“A marvellous, loving and difficult film, a great film.” France Inter
