EVEN WHEN I FALL (Nepal, UK, 2017) Directed by Kate McLarnon and Sky Neal. 95 mins, Triple F-Rated, 12A (Nepalese with English subtitles) A Satya Films and Postcode Films Production. Produced by Elhum Shakerifar.
The documentary Even When I Fall directed by Kate McLarnon and Sky Neal, shows the unbelievable story of Nepal's first circus, which was set up by survivors of child trafficking.
As mentioned on the official website:
“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”.
This film screening has been possible with the sponsorship of West Wiltshire Multi Faith Forum, support from Film Hub South West, Town Hall Arts, the technical expertise of Chris Baker from Cinema For All, and coordinated by Lorena Pino for Getting Together Through Films.
During the last two years, Getting Together Through Films has screened 12 independent feature films and 7 short films showcasing realities from Colombia, Peru, Morocco, India, Pakistan, Syria, Palestine, the Philippines and the UK. These films have raised awareness of the current issues in those countries and have provided an opportunity for people from some of those minority groups to share their opinions. This is the third year celebrating IWD through films! Light refreshments will be provided.
