Willing To Sacrifice   25 min. 1998
This film vividly narrates a story of individual sacrifice. Killed by poachers, Nihal Chand Bishnoi has become a kind of martyr in the Bishnoi community. In him we see the legacy of a community, which has long enjoyed a reputation for fierce environmental protection. Even at the cost of their own lives, the Bishnois adhere to their religious principles which ban the felling of trees and the killing of wild animals. Here, courage and conviction are a part of daily life.

wings of change   (English)-28 min.
A film on Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur, a wetland visited by many migratory birds from all over the world. The film shot in summer , monsoon and winter gives details about the existing bio-diversity and clearly answers why this is the most favoured wetland for the migratory birds. A tree full of different types of birds is a common sight in Keoladeo National Park. Tourists from all over the world visit the park to witness the breeding of birds like Ibis, Painted Stork, Herons, Spoonbills, etc. Rare scenes like Painted stork feeding young ones, Snake bird swallowing its food, are some of the main attractions of the film. Moreover the park,s mammal and reptile population is equally rich. This beautiful park which inspires the hobby of bird watching is also facing the threat of being converted into grassland. Protection of such eco-systems is a major task, which cannot be achieved without involving local people.

Woods Were Lovely Dark and Deep   English/30min 30sec/2002
An indigenous Indian tribe, Kani’s from Agsthayar Hills in the southern state of Kerala, has been awarded the Intellectual Property Rights to the active ingredients of a plant, long known to it as helping to combat stress, in a move that the government hopes will end the ‘piracy’ of tribal knowledge by both Indian and foreign drug companies. While tracing the history of the case itself and trying to understand the issue of access to traditional knowledge and benefit sharing, the film probes an equally larger issue of biodiversity conservation, IPR regimes, and patents debates.

Words on Water   English /85mins/2002
A boat carrying the cargo of defiance begins an urgent journey through the Narmada valley. For more than 15 years, people of the valley have resisted a series of massive dams on their river, and in their struggle have exposed the deceptive heart of India’s development politics. ‘Words on Water’ is about the sustained non-violent resistance, that almost joyous defiance, which empowers the people as they struggle for their rights, yet saves them from the ultimate humiliation of violence.
