CHARLIE RIVEL – A life of film


This is a conference about one of the biggest clowns in circus history: Josep Andreu, better known as Charlie Rivel, to mark the 120th anniversary of his birth. 

The bitter family rift between father and son, his life as a clown between colonial, national and European wars, the relationship he had with the regimes of Nazism and Francoism: all these factors made the life of Charlie Rivel like a movie script.

An exciting lecture on a huge man, who always said that his most treasured possession were the smiles of children.
