Pirates Of Salé / Merieme Addou & Rosa Rogers

Pirates Of Salé / Merieme Addou & Rosa Rogers



On Morocco’s old pirate coast, in the city of Salé, hundreds of teenagers audition every year to become students at the Cirque Shems’y, Morocco’s first professional circus. The circus school sits on the edge of the city’s slums, and represents the one hope for a different future for many of its students. Pirates of Salé follows four young Moroccans on a tough journey of transformation as they learn to live independently, express themselves, challenge convention, and embrace a totally alien concept: artistic freedom.
