An intimate, beautiful film harnessing the visual power of circus to give a unique perspective into the complex world of human trafficking. Shot over six years, it follows Sheetal and Saraswoti, who met as teenagers in a Kathmandu refuge, survivors of child trafficking to corrupt Indian circuses, before being brought back across the border to a Nepal they could barely remember. Even When I Fall watches as they confront the families that sold them, seek re-acceptance and begin to build a future utilising the skills ironically gifted to them by their former captors. With 11 other young survivors, Sheetal and Saraswoti form Circus Kathmandu – Nepal’s first and only circus.
