Among India's one billion people exists a passionate and (to Western minds) eccentric community of 13 million Yogis. They live in a world never seen on film. Paula Fouce's Naked in Ashes is a groundbreaking documentary; which offers an unprecedented look at the Eastern Yogi. These mystics leave everything material to embark on a spiritual quest. With honest simplicity Naked in Ashes provides a magical glimpse into the world of these sages who find deep meaning in a life of chastity, austerity, and utter devotion. From covering themselves for warmth in the ashes of the dead, to pulling automobiles by their genitalia, the film's candid portraits of ascetics whose only quest is to experience the Divine captivates both the eye and mind.
