Focus Years: 2009 | Country: Canada
This film is about nomads who have roamed the subcontinent for hundreds, sometimes thousands, of years. Though all their lives have been impacted greatly by the social and economic development of the country and the changing physical landscape of the region, still there is one practice that is unchanged for centuries. Every year, ten days preceding the first day of the Hindu new year, they travel towards a pilgrimage place to meet their community, to leave behind all material and physical worries, and to submit oneself to the god. The spirit of Kanifnath from Madhi has led these communities through centuries and will keep on.
