The Carsony Brothers
Die Carsony Brüder
This film tells the delightful and very moving story of three exceptional brothers. Back in the 1950s everyone knew the Carsony Brothers! Born into a poor Viennese family, they discovered their talent for acrobatics and set out to conquer Las Vegas and the rest of the world with their amazing feats. Their legendary acrobatic act - the one-armed Handstand on a cane - was a marvel to watch, and they counted among the best equilibristic artists of their time. Their story has never been told and was long forgotten - until now! This film draws on the treasure trove of photographs and film footage from the Carsony's private archive which will be shown exclusively for the first time.
