Varanasi, India: ‘Beyond’

The city of Shiva, Varanasi has been a centre of learning and spirituality for over 2 millennia. Thousands of Hindu come here to wash their sins away in the River Ganges and tour the region’s many holy temples. It’s a spiritual place, one that draws people from miles around. And it’ll definitely leave an impression on travellers.

A group of young photographers from New York embark on an epic journey to film and photograph the holy men of the region, and have produced a stunning documentary about their adventure. And this week it’s our Video of the Week.

It’s a film about travel, about life, about the things we leave behind and the things that we carry, both seen and unseen. It’s for everyone who has ever got on a plane and thought ‘Where on earth am I going?’ and for everyone who chooses to stay home instead. Plus, look out for great footage of the Maha Shivaratri festival.
