Sangam is named after the site of pilgrimage in Allahabad, India where three rivers meet – the Ganges, the Jamuna, and the mythical Saraswati. The rivers converge but their colors do not mix. It is believed by bathing at this confluence, one receives strength and freedom. In January of 2001 at the Kumbh Mela, over thirty million made a pilgrimage to Sangam. Raj has arrived to New York from Bihar, India. Determined, he has left his family, culture, and a troubled past in hope of finding the American Dream. Vivek, a disillusioned Indian American, grapples with the dreams laid out by his parents and the void of making those material dreams a reality. He seeks meaning by reliving fleeting childhood memories of visiting Sangam. Raj and Vivek cross paths on a New York subway train. As each longs for what the other takes for granted, they must confront the currents that bind, divide, and drive them. Sangam, as a film, is a constant confluence of disparate cultures, sustained by each character's memories of Sangam. It is a meditation upon the struggle to maintain faith as first and second generation immigrants. Sangam is a poem textured in aesthetic and meaning, weaving a traditional narrative with experimental techniques – still photography, super 16, super 8, and motion design/animation. -http://www.prashant.tv/sangamtv/synopsis.htmlmoreless
