This is the trailer for "New World Water," a 40 minute documentary I wrote, directed, and produced in Madagascar during the summer of 2006 while a student at NYU.
NEW WORLD WATER captures the story of man's rapidly changing relationship with water and the environment at the dawn of the 21st century. The country and people of Madagascar are brought center stage for an examination of life in the developing world where clean water is scarce to non-existent. The documentary explores the factors that led to the deforestation of the island, the methods being used to manage natural resources, and chiefly, the impact of water on the lives of the people; men, women, and children.
* The statistics presented in the trailer are from the time the documentary was produced, 2006, and have changed significantly since then.
