The Last Breath
It is an immense pleasure to share with you all our last work of 2020 pre pandemic. The documentary titled “The Last Breath” filmed in the spiritual city of Varanasi, India by the acclaimed British Director Celia.
The film follows the story of Kashi Labh Mukti Bhawan which is a charity-run a place that offers lodging to those who wish to give up their last breath in the holy city of Varanasi (also known as Banaras or Kashi) to achieve Moksha, a Hindu term for enlightenment or release.
To attain this salvation, thousands of people travel to Varanasi to die. The so-called ‘death hotel’ has 10 rooms for guests, a temple where they have special prayers three times a day, an office room and small quarters for its priests. Guests who are not medically fit and within days of dying are allowed to take shelter in the house for two weeks with minimal charges. There is a condition to die within two weeks; if the health of the guest improves they are asked to move on. The house offers the service for free to those who cannot afford it.
