In a unique collaboration, FILMING INDO had the privilege to work as a fixer in Varanasi alongside a passionate US-based filmmaker team on a project that delves into the profound journey from life to death. The documentary, aptly titled “Life to Death: A Varanasi Saga,” unravels the spiritual tapestry of Varanasi, showcasing the intriguing rituals surrounding the final stages of life.

India Fixer and Media Coordinator Expertise in Action

As experienced India fixers and media coordinators, FILMING INDO played a crucial role in facilitating this captivating project. Varanasi, with its rich cultural and spiritual heritage, became the perfect backdrop for a documentary that captures the essence of existence and the subsequent transition into the afterlife.

The filmmakers sought to capture the intricacies of life and death at the Kashi Labh Mukti Bhawan, a free guest house where individuals in the final stages of life reside for a brief period. Here, the team witnessed the poignant moments leading up to the inevitable, as individuals prepare for their journey beyond. The subsequent rituals unfold at Manikarnika and Harishchandra ghats, sacred locations where the departed find eternal peace through the cremation process.
