The World’s Saddest Dance is a documentary that explore’s the old Bulgarian tradition of Dancing Bears. In this short film I investigate the way’s in which the bears were once treated and the cruelty involved within this form of street entertainment. Whilst on my journey, I also spend some time with one bear owner to understand his ways of life and how this tradition once became his livelihood.

    Progress. We humans need to respect ALL forms of life. That is the true nature of being human, that is what separates us from non sentient animals.
