Faith Connections is deeply moving documentary filmed at the 2013 Kumbh Mela in Allahabad in india. This is a remarkably insightful film, full of stunning images and for me up there with ‘Walking with Nagas’ as one of the best documentaries out there based on the Kumbh Mela festival.

Directed by Pan Nalin ‘Faith Connections’ follows a young runaway kid, a Sadhu, a mother desperately looking for her lost son, a yogi (Hatha Yogi Baba) who is raising an abandoned baby, and an ascetic who keeps his calm by smoking cannabis – all connected by one faith against the spectacular display of devotion.

New York Times review of ‘Faith Connections’

The documentary is two-hours long and is in 8 parts on Youtube with each part following on from each other. 

Hope you all enjoy it!
