Description

This film documents the people's resistance to the building of the Narmada Dam in India. It shows the mobilisation and non-violent struggles of the indigenous rural people as they use Gandhian-inspired approaches. It also shows the government-backed supporters of the dam responding with their own mobilisation and techniques aimed at undermining the Gandhian methods. The people's movement has led to the World Bank withdrawing support for the dam, although the Indian Government continues its support.
