I custodi dell'acqua

The water keepers. Carnia arises
by Giulio Squarci 2015 60'

Time in Carnia, a remote area of the eastern Alps, ticks to nature's cyclical rhythm. Projects for the development of local water resources by external economic interests stir unrest among the local population. A slight revolution in provincial administration, coupled with civil initiatives against the privatization of water services which put the issue on a referendum ballot in 2011, converge in moving public sentiment to protect their territory. Two women different in age tell a story of the local residents' love of their land, the reemergence of solidarity and idealism rooted in nature.
