There's Something in the Water
Rory WT, Shannon S. Wynne, Stephanie M. Casey, Daniel Villanueva | 2018 | 8 min
"There's two kinds of lakes in the South: them that's got Giant Salvinia and them that's about to have Giant Salvinia." Caddo Lake is the only natural lake in Texas, but its delicate eco-system is threatened by a seemingly unstoppable invasive species of floating fern: Giant Salvinia. There's Something in the Water is an 8-minute animated documentary featuring interviews with people who live and work on the lake, demonstrating the damage that has been caused, and how everyone can work together to try and fix it.

Sonora Rising - A story of water, wheat, and life in the Tucson desert
Sinjin Eberle, American Rivers | 2019 | 11 min

Water and wheat - foundations of life for millennia across the American Southwest. The Colorado River water flows more than 300 miles across Arizona to quench the thirsts of four million people to sustain their food, economy, and livelihoods. We explore three Tucson visionaries who are creating and growing the circular economy of water in the arid Sonoran desert.

From Camel to Cup
Nicky Milne, Jim Bishop, Jeong-One Park | 2019 | 15 min
In 2017, Kenya declared drought a national disaster and in early 2019 announced it had allocated 2 billion shillings, about $20 million, to respond. Extreme weather has pushed wandering nomads to bank on camels - and their milk - as a drought-safe investment with Kenya, now the world's second largest producer of camel milk after neighboring Somalia. Camels are highly adapted to climate change, while their milk has been dubbed "white gold" by food experts who say it could help conquer malnutrition.

Sustainable Nation: Caring for a Water-Starved World
Micah Smith, Rebecca Shore, Imagination Productions | 2018 | 60 min
In a world where clean water is everything, Sustainable Nation follows three individuals who are doing their part to bring sustainable water solutions to an increasingly thirsty planet, and shows how solving global water issues is not only a matter of life and death, it's the start of healing the world.
