Program note

A devout Muslim who writes, composes, and even records hymns praising the Prophet, Rahat is a respected elderly man who works in real estate and takes care of his bedridden wife. He has a guilty pleasure—he likes to dance like the women dancers in old Punjabi films. One day, he attends the wedding of a friend’s son, where he inadvertently shows off a sexy dance in front of his friends. His dance gets recorded on video and uploaded to the social media, which then gets broadcasted on television. And chaos begins to ensue in his quiet life.

Other than his wife, no one else in the world understands Rahat’s passion for dancing. His daughters and neighbors criticize him, his friends turn their backs on him. Circus of Life provides a calm and detailed picture of challenging issues, such as forbidden passions in a strict Muslim society and the search for identity of an elderly man who gradually comes to realize his ‘minoritiness.’ (PARK Sun Young)
