3+ Short Films About Water

The Water Tower, Chasing Water, Delta Dawn

The Water Tower (2013, 27.5 mins, USA)

In Central Kenya, northeast of the Rift Valley, there is a tower. It is a monumental granite swell with a crumbling pinnacle that stretches 17,058 feet into the sky. Mt. Kenya, the second tallest peak in Africa, is home to Ngai, the local water god that is said to create the rains. As a result, Ngai and the mountain provide 70% of the nation's water supply, fed by glaciers and annual storms that eddy around this looming rock island. Pete McBride climbed its false summit with his family when was 9. Returning in 2012 with a group of climbers, he noticed something frightening. It wasn't the same mountain he climbed as a boy.

Chasing Water (2011, 18 mins, USA)

Follow the Colorado River, source to sea, with photographer Pete McBride who takes an intimate look at the watershed as he attempts to follow the irrigation water that sustains his family's Colorado ranch, down river to the sea.

This award-winning short documentary combines an artistic, aerial view with a personal journey to understand this national treasure. McBride teamed up with his bush-pilot father to capture unique footage and also shadowed the adventure of Jon Waterman who became the first to paddle the entire length of the river.

Delta Dawn (2014, 16.5 mins, USA)

The Colorado River ran to the Sea for six million years but stopped nearly two decades ago. In the spring of 2014, something changed. An experimental pulse of water flooded this river of sand and a team paddled the crest to see if they could be the first to navigate this forgotten delta and once again kiss the sea.

Waawaase'aagaming: The Waters of Lake Simcoe (2015, 27 min, CAN)

Waawaase'aagaming is a film with a mission and a heart. A unique look into the First Nation history and personality of Lake Simcoe and those who live and work with the lake. A popular global travel destination, famed for its year round fishing and scenic beauty, Lake Simcoe is one of the largest fresh water lakes in North America. But development, population growth and the consequential increased environmental upheaval, are changing the watershed, affecting the local wildlife and the lives of all who depend on the lake.
