A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE FILM

“Clowning is the intention to defy normal rules of behavior.” - Donald McManus 

"I Clown You" is a documentary about medical clowns in Israel. In case you’re wondering, yes, medical clowning is an actual job. A medical clown is a proper clown (red nose, huge shoes - the works) who has received special training and works in a hospital. The basic idea is simple – to make the experience of being in a hospital less traumatic for everyone – patients (both kids and adults), their loved ones, and also the medical staff. Balloons and bubbles are of course innate to the job, but there are many more layers to this seemingly simple play.

In Israel, this fascinating job has an extra level of meaning. Hospitals here have inadvertently become places of peace that bring Arabs and Jews together – even if it's often for sad reasons. Everybody is equal, leveled by the fear, suffering, and death.  

"I Clown You" is a film about the art of clowning, which is more than just an expression of pure silliness. It’s a deep thoughtful act that requires knowledge, psychological insight, artistic skill, boldness, and provides tools for the exploration of the world and self.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT OUR HEROES

DAVID

"DUSH"
"DUSH"

DAVID "Dush" Barashi is the Pioneer of medical clowning in Israel. He was one of the first three professional medical clowns, who were the pilot project of the Dream Doctors Organisation at Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem. It was almost 15 years ago. Now Dush is the Maestro of medical clowning. He knows the craft in and out. He has travelled the world and gone to places that have experienced severe hardship – Haiti after the earthquake, Philippines after the typhoon, and most recently – Nepal. He has also taught medical clowning all over the world – from Ethiopia to USA. He has been reconciling life and death, fear and hope, chaos and order for so many years - he is a real heavyweight. A true Trickster, he is not to be judged by the rules of ordinary people… but is it always fun?

 FULLA

FULLA
FULLA

FULLA "Falfulla" is the first female Arab clown in the Israeli hospital system. She is a mother of three, separated from her husband. She also suffers from Crohn’s disease. For years she has been struggling to reconcile her background, the world of Muslim religion and tradition, with her calling as a clown. Being a liberal Arab, she represents the minority within the minority. Marginalized by default, she seems to have been destined to be a freak, and indeed she became one. But not by the way of victim… by the way of clown. She found strength in her position and poured her heart into developing her talent. She refuses to take sides in political debates and stands strong on the Human side, even though it’s not always that easy.

DORI AND NOAM

Bone Marrow Transplantation Ward - Isolation Unit
Bone Marrow Transplantation Ward - Isolation Unit

DORI and NOAM work at the bone marrow transplantation ward. Patients here are only adults, most of who have already gone through multiple treatments. Over the course of 6 weeks they undergo the dangerous and painful treatment in isolation. The survival rate here is approximately 50% (pause and process this number for a moment). The clowns accompany patients and their families through the course of the treatment that is the last hope, and that often has no effect.We will follow Noam and Dori working in these intense circumstances to help patients and their loved ones face the battle with death head on, and turn some of the most terrifying days of their lives into a meaningful experience.

OUR GOAL AND WHAT THE MONEY GOES TO

"It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer." - Albert Einstein 

Filmmaking is a collaborative art. This means in reality that it takes a village to make a movie, and even for a village it takes a while. 

We've been working on "I Clown You" for three years running on our personal funds and endless favors of our friends. We have done the research and found our stories, we've been following the community for quite a while and have established the trust and cooperation with the hospital administrators, medical staff, clowns and patients. Now for us to make the movie that we set out to we need a real budget.

The goal of this campaign is to raise $24,000. This will allow us to finish the filming over the course of the Fall and Winter of 2015. But this is the beginning of the production of a documentary. If all goes well (the rest of the funding comes in in time and no war breaks out) it will take us almost another year of full time work to finish the film.

A FEW MORE WORDS ABOUT THE FILM

“Your reality, sir, is lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever.” -  Baron Munchausen

Have you ever noticed how important it is to turn things upside down? Frankly, we never did. We knew it was fun and all, but the fact that it’s really important, vital actually – that never occurred to us until we met MEDICAL CLOWNS.

Do you remember the last time you happened to be in a hospital? Doesn’t matter what status you were in – a patient, a visitor, or even a doctor. Do you remember the feeling you got right before you had to walk in? That little tug on your chest. The dread... A hospital is a very unnatural environment. It’s very controlling, oppressing even. You have no power there. It’s a gloomy kingdom and sometimes it’s hard to get out... The King, the doctor, tells you what to do and where to go and when to eat and how to… oh well.

A medical clown is the Jester of this Kingdom. He comes in exactly when he is needed (not necessarily wanted) and says and does exactly what is right (not necessarily pleasant or fun). He is there to shake it up when things get stale. He is there to remind us that life goes on no matter what… and that’s the heartbreaking beauty of it all.

Basically, he professionally wreaks havoc.

No physical contact is allowed at the bone marrow transplantation ward. Nobody said a word about dancing though.
No physical contact is allowed at the bone marrow transplantation ward. Nobody said a word about dancing though.

The clown, the jester, the trickster has always been there for us to turn the world upside down, and to disprove our assumptions. From African and Native American tribes to Chinese opera and Venetian Carnival, from Charlie Chaplin to Banksy, Pussy Riot, Charlie Hebdo and Jon Stewart… the list goes on. Every single culture of the world has a Fool, and every generation brings on a new iteration of that role.

"God, man, and animal at once. He is both subhuman and superhuman, a bestial and divine being whose chief and most alarming characteristic is his unconsciousness." - Carl Jung

Ambassadors of Carnival, no matter where they serve, the Fools are there to break rules and turn things upside down. Their actions and words can often be not only inappropriate (which they almost should be), but also uncomfortable, unsettling, even insulting. Their arrows sting, but don’t really hurt. They are there to remind us not to take ourselves too seriously, to step out of our comfort zone and give the status quo another look.

We’ve grown to admire the Fools and have learned a lot from them. Through the stories of the characters of “I Clown You” we explore clowning as not just a way of coping or escaping for the patients, but as a way of exploring and interpreting the world, a way of liberating creativity, and a way of questioning authority and challenging stale ideas available to all of us.

ABOUT US

 А ТЕПЕРЬ ПО-РУССКИ

Мы, Саша Капустина и Маша Тишкова, уже три года делаем этот фильм про медицинских клоунов в Израиле и клоунаду, как искусство выхода за рамки. 

Представьте себе, есть такая профессия, не хобби, именно профессия больничная клоунада. Этому учатся, по этой специальности можно даже получить диплом бакалавра или магистра, делаются научные исследования. Все серьезно, как у взрослых, только про дураков. А в дураках, как выяснилось, вся соль. 
Больница - это параллельный мир, в нем свои правила, в нем другие цвета, в нем другие запахи. Даже обычные вещи, принесенные из дома меняют там свои качества... Эти физические ощущения врезаются в память. При чем тут клоуны? ...да так, напомнить, что есть жизнь за пределами. Они умеют не только развеселить. Они приходят и одним своим присутствием меняют правила игры.
Про них и будет кино. 
Мы проделали огромную работу по изучению предмета, по поиску героев. Мы их нашли. Мы уже много сняли. Осталось всего-ничего: доснять, а потом смонтировать и собирать из всего этого фильм! Это мы, конечно, шутим, потому что как раз там и начнется основная часть работы. 

На эту тему вот эта картинка, на которой окончание съемок ставит нас у подножья горы:
Но собираем мы сейчас именно на съемки, потому что их необходимо провести в этом году, иначе одна из историй от нас убежит. До сих пор мы все это делали за свой счет, но так кино не сделать. Нужно кое-какое оборудование, нужно платить съемочной группе, нужны деньги билет на самолет, аренду машины и бензин... На это и собираем. 

Мы будем бесконечно признательны за поддержку в любом объеме!
Если вы живете в России или в Израиле и хотите получить за поддержку какой-нибудь "подарок", пожалуйста, выбирайте уровень 25$ и прибавляйте к этой сумме соответствующую сумму из вот этого "прейскуранта" + 5$ за доставку. 
Например, за футболку: 25$ + 25$ + 5$ = 55$ и после этого сразу отправляйте нам сообщение о том, что именно вы хотите получить.

 СПАСИБО ВАМ ЗА ПОДДЕРЖКУ!

Risks and challenges

We have been working on this project for three years so far. We have laid out the stories and assembled the team. The main challenge now is the funding. This campaign will only fund the filming after that we will need to seek additional funding for finishing of the film, which should become easier once we get this initial money in; but it may slow us down, but it will not stop us. Nothing can stop us.
Another important challenge is the explosive situation in the Middle East that has stifled our work in the past. We hope for peace and will continue work no matter what to get the film done.
Overall, the process may take longer then we anticipate right now, but we have gone this far and there is no going back.
