Faith Connections
The Kumbh Mela is one of the world's most extraordinary religious events, a mass Hindu pilgrimage to a sacred river. It attracts 100 million Hindus from around the world. In the miraculous documentary Faith Connections, filmmaker Pan Nalin travels to the Kumbh Mela, and encounters remarkable men of mind and meditation, some facing an inextricable dilemma: to embrace the world or to renounce it. Faith Connections explores diverse and deeply moving stories such as those of a young runaway kid, a Sadhu, a mother desperately looking for her lost son, a yogi who is raising an abandoned baby, and an ascetic who keeps his calm by smoking cannabis, all connected by one faith in a spectacular display of devotion.
