is a 2002 documentary
by Franny Armstrong
about the controversial Sardar Sarovar Project
. It closely follows a family that is unwilling to leave its village home as the water levels of the Narmada River
, mostly because the government provides them no viable alternatives (they offer unusable land a hundred miles away or a small sum of money in compensation for their river-side land). The documentary features Arundhati Roy
, who has been an outspoken activist bringing international attention to the controversy.
