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.
