First screening of the documentary film by Andrew Horton featuring the "Clowns Without Borders" organization...

Screeening of Andrew Horton's documentary "Laughter without Borders" at the Hellenic American Union

"Laughter Without Borders" was filmed by Andrew Horton during the summer of 2016 in the refugee camps around Thessaloniki, following four Swedish clowns, members of the organization Clowns Without Borders . The documentary features the work of the organization that sends clowns across the world to entertain children living in stressful environments like refugee camps. The clowns offer resilience through laughter. They aim to relieve the suffering of people who have experienced trauma or crisis, especially children, through performances and workshops. Brady Foster, a former student of Andrew Horton at the University of Oklahoma, is the film’s cinematographer and editor.

Andrew Horton and the Swedish clown Jonas Sjogren will be present at the Hellenic American Union to introduce the film and discuss with the audience. The screeening and the discussion that will follow will be in English.

Andrew Horton is an award winning screenwriter and author of books on cinema, script writing and cultural studies and served as Professor of the School of Cinema and Media Studies of the University of Oklahoma for 18 years.
