Palhaços do Rio Vermelho - o curta

No Bairro do Rio Vermelho, em Salvador, reduto da boemia nasceu uma moderna tradição pré-carnavalesca, o bloquinho Palhaços. Como movimento cultural crescente e agregador, evoca o mais simbólico e querido personagem circense para resgatar o lado poético de uma festa que foi engolida pela estética dos trios elétricos, camarotes e cervejarias. O documentário mergulha na história e faz um divertido e colorido desfile, onde a resistência e espontaneidade de participação popular, dão o tom maior.
