The human cost of climate crisis
A Documentary Series


As the fight against climate change intensifies, the challenge of effectively communicating the urgency of the crisis and the relevance of the consequences to everyone on the planet also heightens. There is a vast chasm between the ground reality and the prevalent public perception on the looming threat of climate change. With our films we hope to close that gap through an effective and creative integration of science & storytelling.

The Weight of Water: The Human Cost of Climate Crisis

A grieving mother. A flooded football field. A burdened woman. Three emotional stories set in Nepal show how communities are being impacted by flooding and drought, all made worse by the injustice of climate change and increasing extreme weather events.

The film portrays Nepali people and climate experts telling their story in their own words for a global audience. Through emotional and intimate character driven narratives, the film shows the large-scale impacts of climate change, connecting the dots on how climate change doesn’t act in a silo, but instead it compounds with existing inefficiencies and exacerbates the socio-economic and health impacts.

“How does climate change impact water and through water, people? This question challenges [even] scientists to explain in their own language, and here the filmmakers explain through masterful storytelling. The three interwoven stories painted against the canvas of everyday life in Nepal help us to feel the ‘weight of water’ for those in the front lines of climate change impacts.”
Laurie Ann Vasily, Head of Knowledge Management and Communication at International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development, Kathmandu.


The Retreat of Water

The second film is currently in production and this time we explore the retreating glaciers and water sources in the isolated Himalayan region of Zanskar in Ladakh India. We follow multiple young people dedicating their lives to getting their hands dirty and coming up with as well as implementing innovative solutions to the regions water scarcity issues.

The final film in our three part water series

To complete the series we will explore another water issue exacerbated by the climate crisis somewhere in South Asia.


We want our films to be as accessible as possible. Already we have hosted our own screenings in Nepal and the UK, other organisations and individuals have hosted multiple independent screenings globally. If you would like to host your own screening we are very happy for you to do so. All we ask is for an honorarium if you or your organisation is in a position to offer one. If not no problem. Physical screenings are a powerful tool to start and continue meaningful conversations. We believe our films shine on the big screen (and big speakers) and we hope as many people as possible get the chance to learn about these important stories in this way.

“Earlier in 2019, I was deep in the pits of despair over climate anxiety. It felt like carrying a heavy burden on my heart, fully knowing no amount of crying or screaming would help me get over the sadness or paralysis induced by the fear of future. After going through the long process of letting the grief run through me first, acknowledging the reality and letting go of the anger, I was ready to take action. Keeping in mind my skills & resources, I felt the best thing I could do was raise awareness on the topic. I now spend my time actively reading, researching and spreading the word about climate change.”

"As someone who's always been fascinated with the natural world and all the incredible creatures that live on it, climate change was always something I wanted to care deeply about but I found it very easy to ignore and continue with life as if this impending crisis will somehow go away. Going through spells of veganism and many other efforts to reduce my carbon footprint, I finally realised this was far from the impact that is needed to avoid this crisis. Earlier in 2019 is when I reallv decided to commit to advocating positive change in the best way I could which is through documentary filmmaking."
