Suranga Documentary @SurangaWater

Today we were joined in the studio by A.J Ullah and Adam Jones-Lloyd who are about to embark upon making their latest documentary. In January they will journey to Kerala in India with Dr. Darren Crook and Sudhir Tripathi to film a documentary about Suranga: the particular style of water harvesting that is traditional in the district.

The teaser film for the documetary has already received critical acclaim in an international film festival called Voices from the Water, being shown simultaneously in India and Sweden.

Here is the link to the teaser:

They are running a Kick-Starter (creative fundraising) campaign to aid them in completing the film in a manner which will give the people struggling to obtain clean drinking water an opportunity to voice themselves, while at the same time documenting the dying tradition- which in most cases is better than the more modern techniques the government provides incentives for.
