“Green Green Water” follows the film-maker as she traces the source of her “green energy” back to the displacement of the indigenous Cree and Metis in Northern Manitoba. Whitewashed under auspices of renewable energy, power suppliers provide cheap hydroelectric power to consumers - energy that comes at the price of mass flooding, destroyed land and devastated communities. Dating back to pressured agreements signed in the 1970s, the hydroelectric dams harshly disrupted the sustainable practices of indigenous life. Now, as a new set of dams are being proposed, the communities stand at the crossroads, divided. Some advocate partnership in the projects, hoping to spark the economy and a new way of life; others continue to resist, choosing to maintain the integrity of indigenous tradition. A cautionary tale of consumer consciousness, “Green Green Water” exposes the important story of displacement, resistance and insidious public relations that lie beyond the energy grid.
