Date 27th Feb 2007

Hello from India. We're here in Mumbai filming our new documentary (yup, the same one we've been working on since 2004), so took a train, bus and boat to the Narmada Valley to visit Luharia and his family, stars of our 2002 film, Drowned Out.

 

Things have gone from very bad to even worse in the valley. For the latest news of the campaign to stop the dams, see the Friends of Narmada website.
