To respect his father's wish, the Indian filmmaker Pan Nalin travels to the biggest gathering on earth, the Kumbh Mela. His cinematic writing narrates encounters with remarkable people of mind and meditation; a runaway kid, a Sadhu, a mother who has lost her son, a Yoga Guru who found an abandoned baby, and a Ganja (cannabis) supplying Holy man. A meditation on time and faith expressed in words and images, "Faith Connections" tries to explore the power of devotion. Written by Anne Magidson

User Reviews

Truly Cinematic and deeply moving
6 February 2014 | by nandita-nehruSee all my reviews

Never have I laughed so much while watching a documentary, Nor I have felt such deep emotion that at least twice my eyes turned wet while watching masterly crafted FAITH CONNECTIONS. I have never seen such a powerful documentary before; which entertains and spiritually uplifts your being -and that too I'm an atheist!

Brilliantly captured destinies among thickest crowds; I believe the Kumbh Mela gathering holds a world record for highest number of people congregating in one single place over a month. And that number is staggering 100 million!

This documentary is innovative and truly commences an era of New Wave within the documentary genre where such cinematic merits are are to come by.

A feel good movie, with haunting music score, mesmerizing cinematography and crisp editing kept me awestruck through out its 115minutes of running time.

Pan Nalin once again proves his exceptional talent -and its high time world wakes up to his kind of cinema: fresh, original, entertaining and inspiring!
