It is a film about rivers and people, their relationship and interconnectedness. The documentary exposes the global cost and consequences of the destruction of nature “in the name of progress”. Rivers have been especially badly hit. The film is shot on location in Canada, the Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Albania, and Poland. It conveys a strong message about one of the greatest threats to human civilisation: the growing freshwater crisis. It tells a story of despair and desperation but also one of determination and hope.
The film reveals how irresponsible and ill-considered human activity makes us one of the leading causes of the freshwater crisis. But it shows we can also be part of its solution and tells the inspiring story of how people are fighting until the last drop to protect rivers across the world.
The film is screened in the frame of a forum at POLIS University
