The Juggler. An animation about street art

The Juggler, by Iuri Moreno, collects fragments from the daily lives and experiences of street artists, who amidst the hostility of major cities, seek to bring colors and smiles to those who cross their paths. 

The playful art direction and sound effects provide a contrast between the monochromatic landscapes and the multiplicity of colors in this hybrid between animation and documentary.
