Kashi – the threshold –

I am sharing 5 minute short film about my recent trip to Varanasi.
It was a memorable moment and filled by creative inspirations. My intention to create this film is to compile and share the special moment.
Varanasi is ancient and sacred, at the same time the life is strongly anchored to the Present. Spontaneous beauty of Varanai – the City of Light – is something remarkable and incomparable. I hope you will enjoy this film. Music too was recorded during this trip. It is a bit rough but carries the spirit of the Moment.
