The Story

THE STORY

 

“Water is Love” follows a group of young people grappling with the climate crisis while we journey around the world to share inspiring stories of regenerative ecosystem design to create water retention in communities, villages, and regions. We touch upon traditional ecological knowledge, how water makes climate, and the importance of restoring complete water cycles. Through inspiring stories from successful projects in India, Kenya, and Portugal, we aim to spark conversations and actions that contribute to a regenerative and resilient world. As we’re facing both the growing devastating impacts of climate disruption and the failure of governments to act, this film points to an often overlooked need and possibility: community-driven decentralized water management as a critical key for surviving — and thriving in — this century.

Art has the power to reach our hearts beyond opinion – it can reach a place within us, where we share true compassion, care and love for our planet.

Throughout this documentary we use animated illustrations to show the beauty of the intact water cycle, its widespread degradation, and ultimately, the possibility of regeneration.

We have produced a 12 minute stand-alone animation that is accessible content for children & youth that will be released during our distribution phase.
