Nectar

India, 1972 (MIFF 1975)

Faith and religion determine most of the actions of an average Indian. A great gathering of the faithful, Kumbha Mela, is being held every six years at the confluence of the rivers Ganga, Yamuna, and the invisible Saraswati. Nectar is a record of this colourful event.
