DIRECTOR Kate McLarnon, Sky Neal

A thoughtful and valuable documentary following two young Nepalese survivors of child-trafficking looking to build their own future upon returning home.

This fascinating and intimate documentary follows two young Nepalese women who survived child-trafficking to Indian circuses. Rescued and returning to a country they barely remember, they reclaim their skills as circus artists and begin to build a future against all the odds, forming Circus Kathmandu – Nepal’s first and only circus. Through their work, they seek to educate and challenge the deep-seated stigma against trafficked women as well as finding the courage to piece together their past.
(2017 UK 93 mins Subtitled)

Interviews and conversations between Saraswoti and Sheetal reveal how they deal with their new lives after being rescued. These are interspersed with ethereal shots of the two women performing … The film-makers manage to explore a relatively unknown topic in a sensitive way, which gives a face to the often clinical and detached term “human trafficking”. A pacy, visually arresting and humane doc that will leave a lump in your throat.  Louisa Cavell, Little White Lies
