SATURDAY OCTOBER 24 (SESSION 24)

Director:
Daniel Braga Ulvestad
Producer: Charu Menon

Description:


Stretching along the river Ganges rests Varanasi, the holiest of India’s seven sacred cities, and a place where devout Hindus go to die in hopes of achieving moksha - becoming liberated from the cycle of rebirth. Several so-called ‘death hotels’ exist to accommodate believers who abandon their lives and come here in wait for death-- some for as long as 40 years.
