The film, made by Urban Sky Pictures’ Soumitra Dey documents the revival of an almost discontinued, traditional floodwater harvesting system, indigenous to Palamu district of Jharkhand and its miraculous success in irrigation.
The film was produced under Welthungerhilfe’s Integrated Water Resources Management project that aimed at establishing and replicating models of integrated water management practices, institutionalising processes for community managed water resources and increasing access to entitlements in Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand. The project was supported by Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V. and the European Union.
