Living River: the Ganges

Living River: the Ganges Movie Poster

A groundbreaking and up-close look at the pollution that's been an ecological scourge troubling the revered Ganges River in India. The film delivers as yet an unexplored and authentic view of the river and the people struggling to compel change.

With unprecedented access, the film brings to light an age-old industry of leather production in transition, bringing in USD$4 Billion to the Indian economy at a cost of degradation of the environment and the health of the residents. Does the end justify the means?

This film illustrates the irony of Hindus profiting from the skin of "holy" cows while polluting the "sacred" Ganges River.
