Humans of Varanasi

Kunsang Tenzing is a Tibetan photographer living in McLeod Ganj. In December 2015 he visited Varanasi with film-maker Hartley Woolf and a team of Korean volunteers to take photographs of local low-income families and donate the printed photographs to them.

The film focuses on two large families with whom Kunsang has become friendly over previous years, each living in shanty housing near to the river in Varanasi, and each surviving off of as little as 500 rupees per day. Kunsang shares his thoughts on a practical approach towards helping others, and reflects upon the success of his project in Varanasi.
