STARKISS: THE INDIAN CIRCUS GIRLS

Dir: Chris Relleke & Jascha de Wilde
Netherlands / 2002 / 77mins

A highly acclaimed beautifully made documentary about an old fashioned circus in India where about 50 girls, sold by their parents and separated from the rest of society, are trained to become circus artists. Most of them are from the even poorer neighbouring country Nepal and are smuggled across the border purely for entertaining purposes. The documentary follows and interviews three girls, the little acrobat Sangita , the acrobat Anita Viswakarma and the sword and parrot artist Anita Das, who has a secret love affair with Ravi the clown.
