France, 2014, DCP, 81 minutes

French director Ioanis Nuguet will be in attendance to present his highly acclaimed documentary that is brand new to the festival circuit, just coming off of it's North American premieres at the True/False Film Festival and Toronto's Hot Docs. SPARTACUS & CASSANDRA is a daringly intimate look inside the lives of two Roma children, brother and sister, who are caught between the wishes of their itinerant parents, the French social welfare system, and the young trapeze artist who becomes their caretaker. The film is an ubelievably sensitive and direct portrayal of a difficult childhood, and offers fresh perspective on the lives of western Europe's Roma people.

Specially selected by the Premiers Plans Angers Film Festival programmers for the Austin audience, the film is being presented as a part of Premiers Plans Angers New French Cinema presentation.
