We Came Here to Make God

  • India
Audio Tracks 

The film goes looking for the hands that make god. The labour that goes behind religion. The film moves around a tent setup far away from home for its inhabitants, artisans. They bring with them bundles of clothes, tools, and their desires. While the image of god take shape here, things are cracking at the seams elsewhere.
