I recently completed work on my National Geographic Society-supported project and documentary film, Glen Canyon Rediscovered. The film highlights water management challenges in the Colorado River Basin and explores the history and impacts of Glen Canyon Dam.
Glen Canyon Rediscovered premiered on National Geographic's Short Film Showcase in December 2018 and has screened at and toured with multiple film festivals across the country. The film recieved a Juror Honorable Mention in the Documentary Short Catagory at the Durango Independent Film Festival.
The short film Seldom Seen Sleight , produced in conjunction with Glen Canyon Rediscovered, premiered at the Telluride Mountainfilm Festival in May of 2018. The film was produced with support from the Glen Canyon Institute and recently screened at Wild and Scenic Film Festival and the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital.
The project was generously supported by the National Geographic Society, American Rivers, Black Diamond, 5Point Film Festival, and Dagger Kayaks, among others.
As a Fulbright-Nehru Scholar, I spent a year based out of Jaipur, Rajasthan, producing a series of documentaries about a diverse set of water challenges. The three focus areas of my research and work were the protection of free-flowing Himalayan rivers from hydroelectric dam development in Uttarkhand, water access in Jaipur's unauthorized urban settlements, and the threat of melting glaciers to fragile water supply systems in Ladakh.
My work will culminate in a three-part documentary series, Pani ki Kahani, slated for release in fall of 2019.
