About the film:

The Chindwin River, the biggest tributary of the Ayeyarwady River, is crucial to the lives and livelihoods of about six million people who depend on the Chindwin’s ecosystems for fuel, food, and medicinal plants and the rhythms of the river’s seasonal floods for fishing and riverbank gardens. Along with a changing climate, economic development such as mining has resulted in environmental degradation. Filmed for over 2 years during 2018-2020, this film gives the perspectives of the people living in the basin who talk about the changes to their lives and livelihoods.


Saturday, February 18th, 11:00 AM (Please check in at the box office at least 10 minutes prior to showtime). In-person Q&A in Thai will be held after the screening.
