Drowned Out

2004 NR

In this acclaimed documentary, filmmaker Franny Armstrong -- the mind behind the McDonald's trial exposé, McLibel -- captures the heart-wrenching story of an Indian family forced to choose between their homeland and the rising waters of the Narmada Dam. Shot over three years, the film captures the Jalsindhi villagers' protests, hunger strikes and an emotional Supreme Court case, as well as interviews with best-selling author Arundhati Roy.
