He took a camera to a sacred site in India. And what he recorded is hauntingly beautiful.

For centuries, Hindus from across India and beyond have traveled to Varanasi to spend their last days in the 5,000-year-old city. They believe dying there will release them from the cycle of life, death and reincarnation — and bring them salvation.

“Words fail to describe what I have seen while on this epic trip,” filmmaker Aeyaz Hasn said. “This is my attempt to give you a sense of what it was like to experience the amazing ‘Varanasi’ and the mysterious vicious cycle of life and death.”

The hauntingly beautiful scenes are paired with the poetic words of philosopher Alan Watts.
