Living River is 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 a rarely seen and authentic view of the life at the river’s edge and the people struggling to compel change. With unprecedented access, the film brings to light an age-old industry of leather production in jeopardy, bringing in USD$4 Billion to the Indian economy at a cost of degradation of the environment and the health of the residents. Government corruption, poor accountability, and lack of public awareness are the perfect storm for neglect, pollution and death.
