[edit] Information

Portrait of life on and around the Ganges at Benares, where the dead are cremated, buried or dumped, according to caste or wealth, and the living come to mourn, worship, bathe, gawp and ply their trades. Besides the non-judgmental tone, what impresses about this documentary is the way it balances the many contradictions in the teeming lives it reveals, and the way poetry is combined with wit. Won the best documentary prize at the 1994 Hawaii International Film Festival.
