About this submission

The project began when me and my co-director went on a journey to Kashi (also known as Varanasi), one of the holiest cities in India. Growing up in a Hindu household, we were always surrounded by stories about the beauty of Kashi. We visited Kashi wanting to capture the enchanting story of life and death through the dail religious rituals, but as we spent more time in the holy city, we understood that if we truly wanted to tell the story of Kashi, we needed to do it through the perspective of the people who live and strive there.
