Nepali (English subtitles)
As this remarkable, often distressing documentary tells us, more than 10,000 women and children are trafficked from Nepal to India every year, forced to participate in one of numerous corrupt circuses. Sheetal and Saraswoti met as teenagers after they had been rescued and brought back to live in a Kathmandu refuge. Over six years we follow their journey and attempts to adjust back to their previous lives, although this involves confronting the families who sold them and a struggle to rebuild due to a total lack of an education. Bravely, they set up Nepal’s first circus, made up entirely of trafficking survivors, utilizing the performing tricks they learnt in captivity as a means to genuinely advance in their lives, traveling the country – and internationally – to inform others about the abhorrent practice and dangers of trafficking, as well as readdressing an ongoing stigma surrounding its victims.
Nick Broomfield turns to fiction to tell the shocking true story of the 23 illegal Chinese immigrants who drowned while cockling in Morecambe Bay.
