"THE WELL: WATER VOICES OF ETHIOPIA", "Among Giants", and "What Do Polar Bears Dream...While They Are Dying?"
FEATURE: "THE WELL: WATER VOICES OF ETHIOPIA"
Directors: Paolo Barbieri and Riccardo Russo

A visually stunning film told through the words of an ancient shepherd, the viewer is guided through the life of the Borana, a semi nomadic population in the south of Ethiopia that struggle perennially for survival.

During the long periods of annual drought, the Borana life revolves around ancient perpetual wells, the only resource against the tragic effects of global climate change. Every day the young shepherds form human chains to reach the great depths of the wells and fetch life giving water.

Their hard work is stressed by a chant that draws their great herds, who after days of walking in search of pasture are finally coming home to drink at the singing wells.

As clearcutting continues to ravage California's coastal redwood region, Farmer, an environmental activist, decides to tree sit to defend the McKay Tract. A hundred feet up in the ancient redwood canopy, Farmer must battle the elements and avoid isolation as he fights for a sustainable future.

AA wildlife cinematographer adopts the Arctic as home and discovers that what's really killing polar bears is already killing people!
