Bunkar: The Last of the Varanasi Weavers

An Indian Documentary

Bunkar is an attempt to awaken society to the reality of the life of a weaver and the price he pays so that our Indian legacy lives for one more day. While celebrating the weaves of Varanasi and their creators, the documentary compels us to rethink the role each one of us can play in making a difference to their lives. For every time that art has played it's role in shaping society, today an art is calling out to us. If we do not step up now, we may lose it forever.
