Water Rising

A Documentary Film by Muireann de Barra & Aisling Crudden

‘Hope and change in Bolivia in an era of water privatisation.’

Water Rising is a feature length documentary about family, community, hope and change in Bolivia during an era of water privatisation.

Filmed entirely in Bolivia, the film shares intimate portraits of people living in a ramshackle city where, despite an abundance of freshwater, they struggle for the right to access clean, safe and affordable water.

‘This is a moving and poetic film. By closely observing people with courage and character, the film makers capture the essence of a common struggle in a subtle yet stirring way… ‘
Steph Green, Film maker & Academy Award ® Nominee

    I just wanted to know how it is possible to watch the documentary for anyone who does not live in the vicinity of Dingle! Are there other ways to watch the film? It looks very interesting. I am the brother of Orla Dunlea, one of Cathal de Barra’s friends. I am living in Hong Kong. I am travelling to Bolivia this summer.
