Empowering connections between youth, water, culture, tradition and technology.

Focuses on Cree youth from Wemindji (Eeyou Istchee, Northern Quebec) on their trip to South Australia to learn more about water and culture with people from Adnyamanthanha, Kaurna and Ngarrindjeri communities. The documentary shares wisdom, challenges, and practices related to water from a diversity of cultural worldviews. The film has made ripple effects among communities interested in water protection, especially when learning about water-related knowledge from different cultures. Viewers can exercise empathy, deep listening, and appreciation for different realities and viewpoints.
