The Circle is a documentary film about the transformational power of yoga in curing drug addiction in the street children of Mumbai. The film focuses on the centre in Dharavi, which finds and takes in some of the most vulnerable members of society, ultimately reforming their lives.
The documentary tells the tale of four street children through their individual stories, portraying their harrowing ordeals whilst living on the streets. We hear how they fall into a cycle of addiction – one from the age of just seven – how they live out of dustbins and survive simply by selling rubbish, using drugs to block out their inner pain.
The Circle is a moving, at times disturbing, but ultimately uplifting tale of the human spirit.
A brief Q&A will follow the film with the man responsible for the Dharavi centre, Yogi, and priest Fr Joe Pereira. Fr Joe will be on Salty to lead a yoga fundraiser. He travels the globe annually, teaching yoga to raise money for the Indian addiction centres.
