The Water War - A Guerra da Água


The Water War - A Guerra da Água

Four stories cross in a Mozambican village. Stories about the importance of a water can, a well that gets broken, a lonely hunter, a bird that in his cage becomes a portable radio… And in all of them there’s dignity, pride and laughter. The documentary has three protagonists: the well, the women and the baobab. A magical film.
