    IN THE FOREST HANGS A BRIDGE - Located deep in the forested hills of the siang valley of Arunachal Pradesh, at the north-eastern extremity of India, Damro village gathers to build a 1000 foot long suspension bridge, the elegant structures of cane and bamboo, that are the distinctive mark of the Adi tribe. Their only tool is the dao, bl Film aade length of tempered steel, the size of a machete. WORDS ON WATER - For more than 15 years, people of the Narmada valley in central Insia have resisted a series of massive dams on their river, and in their strriggle have exposed the deceptive heart of India's development politics. When the use of violence has become the arbiter of all political debate, Words on Water is about a sustained non-violent resistance, an almost joyous defiance, which empowers people as they struggle for their rights, yet saves them from the ultimate humiliation of violence.
