… to visit Varanasi, India

"Varanasi is India in its crude version, the romantic and magical imaginary, while shocking, visceral, unforgettable. It’s a live documentary, challenging every sense in a sensory contradiction. "

“Varanasi é a Índia em bruto, o imaginário romântico e mágico, ao mesmo tempo chocante, visceral, inesquecível. É um documentário ao vivo, todos os sentidos desafiados numa contradição sensorial.

Jorge Vassalo
