Oooo! is a touching and powerful comedy about the lives of a group of clowns in Nazi Germany. Charlie Rivel, the most tender of clowns is forced to perform for Hitler, the most barbaric of dictators. Can art be guiltless? Does it have to submit to power? Can an artist remain apolitical in the midst of such political mayhem?
Starring Alain Goulem as Charlie Rivel (CBC's The Tournament and 18 to Life)
With Patrick Costello, Graham Cuthbertson, Tobias Goulem and Jesse Todd.
