Sheetal and Saraswoti met as teenagers in a Kathmandu refuge, both having been trafficked as children to India to be trained as circus performers. When they are rescued, they return to a Nepal they barely know.  This striking doc follows them as they reclaim their breath-taking skills and strive to build a positive future. 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.  The film's producer, Elhum Shakerifar, joins us for a live Q&A afterwards on Wed the 18th.
