Film Synopsis: Blue Heart

Director: Britton Caillouette | Countries of production: United States | Year: 2018 | Length: 45 min
Language: English, Albanian, Macedonian with English subtitles | Age: 8+ years

Combining stunning cinematography with a fantastic breadth of individual portraits, this sumptuous documentary chronicles communities fighting to save the last wild rivers of Europe.

On the Balkan Peninsula, between Slovenia and Albania, more than 3,000 proposed hydropower projects threaten to destroy the rich, diverse culture and huge biodiversity of this forgotten region. As investment in renewable energy increases, how do local communities get to benefit – and have a say?

Whereas dam projects on a much grander scale in India or China have (rightly) attracted international attention for the destructive havoc they wreak, the battle to save the “blue heart” of Europe remains little known. This film is sure to change that.
