Experience India’s Holy Cities in 'Gateway to the Ganges'

Travel along India's Ganges River and see bits of daily life in Rishikesh, Hardiwar, and Devprayag. Filmmaker Brandon Li contrasts the beauty of nature with the harsh realities faced by many who live in poverty on the streets of these holy cities.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
