About

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.

Plus Audience discussion, Short Films

Join us after the film for inspiring conversations and opportunities for creative, effective personal action, with guests including Tyler Farrow (Programme Manager, Water Witness).
