Peanut the Dancing Clown is in search of a friend.
Will he find one?
Maybe, if Feists Secret Heart works its magic...
Peanut the Dancing Clown searches a busy city street for a friend to join him in some fun. Equal parts documentary, music video, and performance art, the film has everyone asking: will Peanut be alone forever?
In a hybrid work, mixing documentary, streetside performance art, music video and DIY experimental video techniques, Michael V. Smith's clown character, Peanut, plays with expectations as much as his unwitting audience.
