The woods of Anusuya Devi in Uttarakhand remain untouched by human influence. The film 'Reviving Faith' takes its viewers into the sacred groves of the Himalayas that are still alive because of the faith of its people. It traces the struggles of the Himalayan people to save their forests from being plundered. What remains of this faith today? The Himalayas are crumbling under the pressure of countless development projects. On the one hand, they are bearing the assault of human abuse; on the other they are dealing with an invisible adversary called climate change.
Reviving faith raises a critical question- can the modern world restore the faith that conserved nature, before it gets too late?
