Confluence was filmed at dawn in Varanasi during a brief devotional song to the Lord Krishna that I came upon unexpectedly. Confluence refers to the sacred city of Varanasi which is named for two rivers that flow into the Ganges, the Varuna in the north and and Asi, now just a small stream, at the south. The title also reflects the layering of activities, sacred and secular, that occur everyday on the ghats including laundry workers,(dhobi wallahs) chai vendors and people from all over the world who visit Varanasi and stroll on the ghats at dawn.
