Send in the Clowns

by Sam Lee

Send in the Clowns film poster
Runtime: 82′

Send in the Clowns explores the impact of aid in Haiti as it follows a group of idealistic volunteer performers from Clowns without Borders. When the clowns arrive in Haiti, they experience doubts about their effectiveness as aid givers. The film asks whether Haiti’s crippling and conflicted relationship with aid organizations is actually more absurd than sending in the clowns.


The film was followed by a Q&A with guest speakers:
