A Dam Old Story by Tarini Manchanda

A film about Himachal Pradesh’s precious Renuka Valley – home to biodiverse forests, fertile lands and people who have been living and farming in India’s northern mountains for generations. This Valley lies in the submergence area of a dam project that is meant to supply Delhi with water. The Film takes a look at the stakes for this dam and asks whether Delhi needs this dam or Himachal’s water, at all.
