The Water Walker is a short documentary, tracing the roots, passion and perseverance of teenaged climate activist Autumn Peltier.

At 15 years old, Autumn Peltier, the Anishinabek Nation chief water commissioner, had already spent half of her life fighting for water. Motivated by stories of children growing up without access to drinkable tap water and elders forced to walk every day to claim water rations, Autumn embarked on a mission to bring clean drinking water to Indigenous communities across Canada. Directed by James Burns, the film follows Autumn's journey from Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory, on Manitoulin Island, to the United Nations General Assembly in New York City as she fights for the rights of Indigenous communities across Canada.

Starring Autumn Peltier, narrated by Graham Greene.
