A young Amateur filmmaker Kangba Lovejoy has just released his latest short film “Tears of a Clown”, a 10-minute-film that narrates the everyday life of a clown and how his profession is overshadowed with negative stereotypes. But in the end of the day, his job requires him to cheer up and make people smile.
A thought-provoking and entertaining addition to diversity awareness as he make poignant observations about his quirky life on the other side of stereotypes, inspired by how he wants to be heard or live a normal life but his profession doesn’t allow him to be what he actually wants.
