About this course
The Stolen River
Six young people in rural India set out on a journey to find out who is poisoning their sacred river Yamuna, causing people and animals to fall sick and die en masse in their village and surrounding areas. By the time they arrive at the foothills of the Himalayas, a shocking reality unfolds in front of them: their river has been “stolen” and replaced by an open flow of sewage, causing a major ecological disaster affecting tens of millions – to which, unknowingly, the wider world contributes.
According to one study, around 23% of children along the river in Delhi have a lethal amount of lead in the body. With powerful images and engaging narration, the ‘Stolen River’ tells an urgent and timely story with grace and beauty.
This powerful and moving film explores the complex factors at play in the pollution of the Yamuna river.
