The Water Front + Troubled Water + The Fight for Bala + Reborn
The Water Front: (CAN,2007) (52.5 minutes)

The Water Front is the story of an American city (Highland Park, MI  in 2007) in crisis but it is not just about water. The story touches on the very essence of our democratic system and is an unnerving indication of what is in store for residents around the world facing their own water struggles.

Troubled Water: (NEPAL, 2013) (31 minutes)

Government data shows Kathmandu Valley demands 280 MLD. Only 1/3rd of the demand is currently met. Daily 220 million litres is extracted from the ground. See what will be the faith of traditional dugwells and stonespouts. We have heard about Melamchi last 30 years when we was a teenager. We have grown old now, still water from Melamchi has not come. What the government is doing? Selling the dreams only? Making our issue a begging bowl? Corrupt! Its time to ask why Melamchi could not even after 30 years people ask question. KUKL supplies water extracting from the ground. No work has been done to conserve the source. If the situation continues Kathmandu will subside in 20-25 years. The basic necessities like food and drinking water are in high scarcity. In order to wash clothes, people gather themselves on the banks of Bagmati River. It is much polluted. We do not have any options. We have already confronted the higher authorities and questioned them for bringing about drinking water, but our concerns have been ignored.

The Fight for Bala: (CAN, 2015) (9 minutes)

This documentary by award-winning film directors Rob Stewart and Jonah Bryson examines this communitys determination to stand together and fight against a development they say will irreparably ruin the natural landscape, destroy the tourism industry forever and wreck livelihoods  without providing any benefit to the community.

In an environmental battle that has implications for other small communities in Canada and around the world, there can only be one winner in The Fight for Bala -- and one loser.

Reborn: (BRA, 2015) (7.5 minutes)

A group of young farmers in Brazil create a spring protection project, making a simple action in the hope of environmental preservation and awareness for the future.
