India – Ohana

Ohana was shot in Haridwar, at Sri Ram Ashram. At the orphanage, family is viewed much differently than our western perception of family structures. In the documentary, students from Mount Royal University, Calgary are asked what they think family means. The students are documented as they travel to the Ashram and experience what a high-context culture functions and how family is viewed. Brothers and sisters from the orphanage are interviewed as well, giving a unique insight into how they view their family. A final interview is conducted back in Calgary to see how student’s perceptions have changed.
