Embark on a mesmerizing journey to Varanasi, India, with the exclusive documentary “Varanasi, India: Beyond,” featuring renowned photographer Joey L. Witness as filmmaker Cale Glendening accompanies Joey and his assistant Ryan on their quest to capture the essence of Varanasi’s holy men in their latest photo series.

In Varanasi, a city steeped in spirituality, ascetics from various religious traditions roam the streets. These wandering monks have relinquished all worldly possessions, devoting themselves entirely to the pursuit of spiritual enlightenment.

For these holy men, reality transcends materialism, with the mind serving as their sole arbiter. Death holds no fear for them; instead, it is embraced as a transition from the realm of illusion to something greater.

Amidst the awe-inspiring landscapes of India, this documentary underscores the profound truth that capturing a remarkable portrait goes beyond mere technical prowess or equipment. At its core, it is about capturing the essence of the subject, delving deep into their spiritual journey and inner world.
