The Eco-Warrior project will produce a three part documentary film that focuses on environmental issues and activism in three countries: Turkey, India and the USA.
- In Turkey, the “Soul Water” segment relates the struggles of the Eastern Black Villagers as they try to stop the Hydro Electric Dam (HES) projects which are forcing them to migrate due to droughts and destruction.
- In India, the “River of Love” segment will tell the story of the Yamuna tributary to the Ganges as a river of worship and commerce that is in crisis.
- In the USA, the “Gone with the Mountain” segment will visit the mountains of Kentucky and West Virginia to study the effects of mountaintop removal coal mining.
Filiz Cicek is a transnational eco-feminist artist, filmaker, scholar, journalist and educator who will produce, write and provide artistic direction for the film in collaboration with international film crews. If you would like to get involved with the project, please send her an e-mail.
