Michael- I previously met Denis Whyte who produced a film about an Aghori's initiation (the ascetics studied by Johnny Parry in Banaras), and when I googled 'Michael Yorke Anthropology' I found the Astra Films page. Your Indian films sound familiar. I have visited Banaras several times, but never attended a Kumbh Mela.
I have also been involved in ethnographic film making. My fieldwork amongst the elephant handlers of Nepal facilitated a film called 'Servants of Ganesh: Inside The Elephant Stable' (see: http://www.oneworldfilms.com/). You can view a brief clip on my OAC page
As an undergrad at Kent, we hosted the RAI Ethnographic Film Festival which was wonderful (1998 I think). During my subsequent time there as research student and then lecturer (until 2008), we also had visits from Gary Kildea, Paul Henley and Andre Singer.
....there is a new post, maybe of interest? Anthropology of Habitat and Architecture: The five main lines of the evolution of culture". You will find it at the OAC-Blog site. Would be glad for a comment...!
