Holy (un)Holy River

A winner at the Banff Mountain Film Festival, this film shows the issues associated with the once pure Ganges River. The Hindu faithful believe they can cleanse away their sins by bathing in this “holy” water, which carries the unfiltered drainage of a population twice the size of the United States. Directed by Pete McBride and Jake Norton.
