Important and Well-made Documentary
- Even When I Fall review by JR
An important and well-made documentary that really made me think. The film concentrates on the stories and rehabilitation of two girls from Nepal who were trafficked as children to work as slave labour in ramshackle circuses in India. I was shocked by the scale of the problem, and there were many moving scenes that show how much trust the filmakers must have built up with their subjects. Although the film concerns the worst of human nature; with the help of NGOs, the rescued children are able to look forward to an education and a life with dignity, and above all, working to prevent this kind of exploitation in the future.
