2014 – 91 min. Directed by Simon Busch, English
A fascinating journey into the land of longing spirituality – India, a thousand-year old civilization – mythical and mysterious, infinitely rich in ancient traditions, architecture, culture and religion. A fascinating culture and magnificent landscapes. For months, Simon Busch and Alexander Sass traveled with her team for this film through the north of the subcontinent to get the hidden nature of this huge country on the track. The film shows some important cities and temples and traces the different religions that also characterize today’s India. The film also shows the everyday life of the people of India. In Varanasi, the holiest city of the Hindus where they burn their dead, at the Kumbha Mela, the biggest religious festival in the world, thirty-five million pilgrims gather in a confined space to bathe in the waters of the Ganges. There are vast, highly emotional images that were never before seen on film.
