These outstanding documentaries reveal the Latin America you don’t see on TV; Here are the indigenous people and the workers of Latin America from Chile to Peru to Colombia. Those suffering the most from the exploitation of their land and their rights but who are the ones willing to stand up and resist!

Make sure you book your tickets before they all run out! Following a sell-out run as part of Roundhouse CircusFest in April 2010, Circolombia are back with a reworking of Urban for 2011.

Forget everything you know about circus. Circolombia is nothing like the animal jumping circus you remember as a child. Circolombia is gritty, modern, full of attitude and comprised of a motley crew of exuberant young artists, whose awe-inspiring acrobatic prowess is matched by their high voltage energy.

Urban features some of the best performers from Circo Para Todos (Circus For All), Colombia’s national circus school and the first professional circus school in the world for disadvantaged young people, which produces world-class performers.

Set against the backdrop of the Colombian city Cali, Urban weaves through the dark street life, with a freestyle portrait of society, incorporating both joy and violence where dance and music are the safety valves of  everyday life. With a pounding live reggaeton soundtrack, raw contemporary aesthetic and volcanic force, Urban is truly unforgettable.
