The Water Tower

2013 USA / Duration: 27 mins Directed by: Peter McBride

Following his elegiac look at the plight of the Colorado River in Chasing Water (Mountainfilm 2011), filmmaker, photographer and adventurer Peter McBride turns his talents to an analogous story about the vast watershed beneath Mt. Kenya and the challenges it faces. Beautifully shot and thoughtfully written, this film paints a human portrait of climate change and frames it in forces far greater than human.
