A special preview of this intimate and beautiful documentary from filmmakers Kate McLarnon and Sky Neal, produced by Elhum Shakerifar (A Syrian Love Story) preceded by a Q&A session with members of the production team. 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 can hardly remember. Even When I Fall follows them as they begin to build a future utilising their secret weapons ironically gifted to them by their former captors: their breath-taking skills as circus artists. Shot over the course of six years, this film follows the creation of Circus Kathmandu, Nepal’s first and only circus. With a rich backdrop of the beautiful Kathmandu Valley, this special film harnesses the visual power of circus to give a unique perspective into the complex world of human trafficking.
