Narmada: A Valley Rises (1994, 86 min, CAN)

Since its premiere in 1994 at Hot Docs, where it won three awards, Narmada: A Valley Rises has become a classic film about the grassroots struggle against the large dams.

Documenting the longest and most sustained mass action mounted by the Save Narmada Movement, the film offers a compelling and intimate portrait of a unique movement while raising critical and universal issues of human-rights, social justice, and development within a democracy. For Canadians, the resonances to aboriginal struggles in this country will be familiar and striking.

In the 25 years since it was filmed, Narmada: A Valley Rises has not lost its power to move and inspire. Cameron Bailey, writing for NOW Magazine in 1994 wrote: "This film stands in the best tradition of committed film-making. For anyone worn down or cynical about social struggle, Narmada shows how it can be both effective and inspiring".
