Sheetal and Saraswoti met as teenagers in a Kathmandu refuge, survivors of child trafficking to corrupt Indian circuses and brought back across the border to a Nepal they could barely remember. Even When I Fall traces their journey over 6 years as they confront the families that sold them, seek acceptance within their own country and begin to build a future. They struggle against the odds and without education, but inadvertently these girls were left with a secret weapon by their captors their breathtaking skills as circus artists . With 11 other young trafficking survivors, Sheetal and Saraswoti form Circus Kathmandu Nepal s first and only circus.
We are extremely fortunate to have Anna Strickland, UK Director of Circus Kathmandu coming along for a Q&A and to keep us up to date with how the girls are getting on. A 'must see' film and event.
