Date grant awarded: 02/19/2018

SunGanges (SuryaGanga) is a documentary feature film about the epic conflict between India’s land, energy, water and people. Filmed over 4 years, the film is an adventure, a wild and intense ride across the vast Indian landscape as filmmakers Valli Bindana, her 6yr old daughter Anu and brother Marthand Bindana film the social and environmental impact of big energy projects – hydro and coal and witness the rise of solar and wind. A panoptic picture, SunGanges tells the stories of marginalized people across the country while busting myths and misinformation about the energy sources and urges the viewer to think and make informed choices for themselves.
