Concorso documentari italiani 2012

Menzione speciale Legambiente

Mention assigned to

“He who finds water will never be the well owner”, “People in a well cannot fight”. These concepts of democracy and sacredness of water resources, as explained in this documentary, contain a lesson on the inestimable value of water. Through enchanting images of singing wells, the lesson is taught by the Borana shepherds of Southern Ethiopia where the scarcity of water, the only resource on which the survival of humans and animals depends, is fought against in an exemplary manner: through the equal and fair management of a sacred and social resource. Special recognition is also due to Ciar Cumè l’acqua del Lamber, a battle our association waged, and La Crociera delle Bucce di Banana, a fine example of civic initiative.
