Stunning footage from the Kumbh Mela Hindu pilgrimage by Brooklyn-based director and cinematographer Jeremy Snell (previously featured here). Shot in Allahabad and Varanasi earlier this year, “Pilgrims” is a meditative look at an event that sees an estimated 120 million people gather between January and March. The historic pilgrimage only occurs once every 6 and 12 years, and is the largest gathering of humans on the planet.
