Dams have always been controversial. At least, that’s what they say. Over in Singapore, we might not really give a dam about it! Haha! Although, given the flood situation a couple of months ago…
But seriously folks. Several environmentalists have long stood against the construction of dams, and now two film makers coming up with a documentary and a full length feature film about those dam things. And no, we’re not talking about Peter Jackson’s proposed Dambusters flick.
No, it’s Oscar-winning film maker James “Avatar” Cameron who has announced that he is planning to shoot a 3D movie about the difficulties of indigenous people of Brazil, who are facing displacement over the construction of a dam on the Amazon river. None of the indigenous tribes will be blue humanoids, however, so who knows how well that film will do.
Similarly, Sohan Roy is coming up with his movie Dam 999 about a 100 -year-old dam and populace living around it, and how the dam affects the inhabitants in that area. The movie is expected to be out in December.
