Why screen SunGanges?

  1. Electricity at the point of its generation, wreaks havoc on water, habitats and the environment. It need not be so. SunGanges makes a strong case for sensible, sustainable renewable energy. The film is made to spark dialogue and discussion around changes needed in policy with regard to early adoption of clean energy.
  2. Fresh water has become a subject of concern in many countries and even so we see water being mismanaged by huge centralized energy projects like big dams, coal fired power plants. This film gives a panoptic picture of all these issues and discusses solutions as well.
  3. SunGanges, even as it is set in one country India, is timely, even urgent. As we see the alarming effects of climate change, this film becomes the story of the world.

About the Film

“...a playful, open minded film about a deadly serious subject…” - is how International Rivers, California, describes the film SunGanges. The story is set in India. But SunGanges’s topic of Energy and Water is as current, burning and global as it can get.

When stretches of the Ganges River Basin dry up in the Himalayas due to intensified damming, a curious 6yr old girl asks "if the river is not there, why hear stories about it?". To which the mom along with her brother set out to find some answers. SunGanges is that adventure, a wild and intense ride across the vast Indian landscape as the curious trio film the social and environmental impact of big energy projects of hydro and coal and witness the rise of solar and wind.

Highly informative and entertaining, SunGanges continuously dives right into the heart of matters taking along dam officials, affected tribals & locals, researchers, geologists, professors, entrepreneurs & doctors some who prefer to remain anonymous. In the process of filming, the makers meet fine and famous actor Naseeruddin Shah who adds a dubious, yet not entirely unfamiliar dimension to the subject.
