“When I joined Swarovski Waterschool, I started feeling at peace. I started getting hope.”
‘Waterschool’ follows the experiences of several young female students who live along six of the world’s major rivers – the Amazon, Mississippi, Danube, Nile, Ganges and Yangtze – and celebrates the efforts of Swarovski Waterschool.
The documentary was born from the hearts and minds of seven UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television graduate students with the mentorship of Dean Teri Schwartz. The making-of led this passionate filmmaking crew across five continents to capture the moving stories of these young girls, giving voice to the generation for whom the preservation of clean water is most pressing. Vivid, lyrical, and often poignant, the film is a reminder of the power of education – with the support of the business community – to transform lives and tackle the world’s pressing environmental issues.
