Social Action Film Nights
COMING UP ON TUESDAY 25th MARCH
Arts in Action in collaboration with Mindful in May proudly present the Australian Premiere of the multi-award winning film The Well – Water Voices from Ethiopia, a highly cinematic, visually enthralling film by Paulo Barberi and Riccardo Russo. Screened at more than 90 festivals all over the world, The Well is the most awarded Italian documentary of 2013.
Winner of Best Cinematography and Sound Editing at the 2013 Social Impact Media Awards (SIMA).
Told through the words of an ancient shepherd, the film follows the life of the Borana, a semi nomadic population in the south of Ethiopia that struggle perennially for survival.
During the long periods of annual drought, the Borana gather with their livestock around ancient wells, the only resource against the tragic effects of global climate change. Huge hand-excavated craters, known as “singing wells”, allow them to survive during the long yearly droughts.
Every day the young shepherds form human chains to reach the great depths of the wells and fetch life giving water. With its strong photography and its epic narration, the film follows their life during a whole dry season, showing a unique equitable water management system that allows them to manage the little available water as the property and right of everyone.
While all around the world, access to drinkable water is still not considered a fundamental human right, the Borana’s extraordinary system guarantees general and indiscriminate access to water in one of the driest inhabited regions on Earth.
