Movie Info

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.

No film will break your heart and then raise your spirits quite like this affecting depiction of exploitation.

At times it's stingingly tough to watch, but a privilege to hear these women tell their stories in their own clear-eyed words.

Even When I Fall is understated and unobtrusive, allowing us to share intimate moments in the rooftop conversations between Saraswoti and Sheetal and times when they trade stories with other girls rescued from Indian circuses.

A pacy, visually arresting and humane doc that will leave a lump in your throat.
