Roll Up, Roll Up for an unforgettable experience! This film tells the story of itinerant circus performers, cabaret acts, and vaudeville and fairground attractions. In this film, rarities and never-before seen footage of fairgrounds, circus entertainment, freak shows, variety performances, music hall, and seaside entertainment are chronicled from the 19th and 20th century. We will see the early shows that wowed the world, and home movies of some of the greatest circus families. The film is accompanied by an epic new score by Georg Holm and Orri Páll Dýrason of Sigur Rós.
