DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

Just before the pandemic hit, my producers and I attended a Waterkeeper Alliance fundraiser in Los Angeles. I had heard of the Riverkeepers who saved the Hudson River back in the 60’s, but was curious to dig deeper.

We arrived to discover, mounted the walls of the room, poster sized photos of Waterkeepers from around the planet. A hand out gave their thumbnail bios – an amateur soccer player who stopped four coal fired power plants from being built in Senegal; a soft spoken Bangladeshi father who faced down death threats to prevent tanneries from spewing toxic waste into his beloved Buriganga River; a fourth generation fisherwoman who has taken on, and beaten, one of the biggest plastic maufacturers in the world. People literally putting their lives on the line to protect their local water source.

Their fearlessnes and selflessness are a call to action. We aim to celebrate them, as they work on the front lines in the most important war humanity has ever faced… saving our beloved planet, and her most precious resource – water.
