Juggling movies


#1

Inspired by this article https://www.juggle.org/juggling-movies-colombia-review/ I thought I could make a list of juggling movies. But since my knowledge is limited, why not make a list together?

Once it’s “finished”, we could perhaps move it to the Juggle Wiki, or leave it hear to grow.

Let’s try and get a date, author, list of jugglers, links with information and a link where it can be viewed/bought (if any) for all of these.
My suggestion for a threshold: The video should be mainly juggling (not talking about juggling, actual juggling), and a minimum length of 30 minutes. No simple recordings of live shows. No convention videos. Not mainly instructions. Does that seem fair?

Stuff from the top of my head: (I’ll look up the details & fill them in later) (in random order, I’ll try to sort them by date later)

Ohhh, thanks, that’s a nice list!

I don’t think all of them meet the suggested minimum of 30 minutes, but that number is quite arbitrary to begin with… what would be a better way to separate the “movies” from the short videos?


#5

http://www.juggler.co.il/scott/library/#videos has some ya’ll didn’t mention (for sure, all the fest videos, but also many others).


#6

I have not seen most of them, could you please name the ones for me which aren’t convention or instructional movies, and mainly contain clips of juggling instead of talking about juggling (like the Bobby May documentary…)


#7

Would it be possible to merge the two Wes Peden headlines in the list into one? “Expectations” is currently on it’s own.

Juggling in Stockholm by Oskar Wrangö


#8

Actually I don’t know!
It’s on the list of VSNBT releases on Oskar Wrangö’s Vimeo page so I added it but know anything about it.


#9

There are also at least four full length documentaries that I can think of that are quite good. There are documentaries on Ernest Montego and Alberto Sforzi. There are also two general documentaries on juggling in general. I’m just too lazy right now to find the names and links.

Nice suggestions and a lot of things to check on this thread, thanks for creating it.

I can add some of the videos posted on Malabarize-se

Se essa rua fosse minha : not only about juggling but street art and with lots of jugglers and brazilian street artists. no subtitles available atm unfortunately.

In case we flexibilize a bit and accept convention videos and smaller than 30 min I believe these could be added to the list as well:

EJC 2014 video on Malabarize-se: why? slightly different than usual convention videos with several different sectors (gym, experimental tent and so on…) and much bigger.

The short film “What is a juggling convention?” produced on the 5th circus, juggling and clowns convention of the state of São Paulo.
This one is 11:23 minutes and have english subs.
it’s a great one for the friends who have never been to a convention.

If we also accept something that goes a bit out of the rules there’s Journey on Vimeo: one of the best unicycle videos I’ve ever seen (35 minutes).

(unfortunately since I’m a new user I can only post 2 links, maybe later I try to edit this post and update it :slight_smile: but you can easilly google the videos without links.
