With the 7th Greenmotions Film Festival we placed special emphasis on the resource “Our Water”. The opening night in the municipal cinema on Thursday, November 11th, was dedicated to our special topic. The documentary “Coral Woman” by Priya Thuvassery opened the festival. This was followed by the documentary “Waterproof” by Daniela König, which tells the empowerment story and friendship of the first female plumbers in Jordan. After the screenings, the filmmakers were present via Zoom for fruitful discussions.
On Friday we started with a short film series, which was also dedicated to the special topic “Our Water”. “Plastic River” by Manuel Camia, “Kokoly” by Garth Cripps and Paul Antion and “Until the last drop” by Tim Webster highlighted various aspects of this precious resource. On Saturday we showed our last film dealing with the special topic: “One Word” by Mark and Viviana Uriona. A participatory documentary about the consequences of climate change, which was developed and implemented in film workshops with the involvement of the population of the Marshall Islands.
Another highlight: The Finep initiative supported the film competition and provided us with a “water wheel” that shed light on the topic of water consumption. Thank you for your kind support!
