Even When I Fall (12a)

Directors Sky Neal and Kate McLarnon. Documentary


Sheetal and Saraswoti met as teenagers in a Kathmandu refuge, both survivors of child trafficking to Indian circuses. They had been rescued and brought back across the border to Nepal, but what does the future hold for these young women returning to a home they barely remember? Even When I Fall traces their journey over 6 years, as they reclaim their breath-taking skills as circus artists and begin to build a future against all the odds. Along with 11 other young trafficking survivors, they form Circus Kathmandu – Nepal’s first and only circus – creating a livelihood for themselves and simultaneously working to educate and challenge the deep-seated stigma against trafficked women. This intimate, beautiful film harnesses the visual power of circus to give a unique perspective into the complex world of human trafficking.


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Very well received. Despite the serious subject matter - child trafficking across the Nepali/India border, the film is engaging and finally uplifting. Cinematography and editing is superb. Audience response 9/10 (or higher) but people need to understand what they are coming to see.
