Dear Videonews Subscribers,
=20
Stories about Muslims and Catholics working together to improve their =
communities are needed now, as many pundits continue to spew ideas about =
a coming clash between East and West, between religions, between =
traditions. THE WATER BEARER documents one such story in a gentle and =
beautiful way.
=20
THE WATER BEARER
Directed by Pascal G=E9linas
=20
On Flor=E8s Island in Indonesia, Catholics and Muslims are developing a =
democratic and egalitarian community, as well as a sustainable economy.=20
=20
Gilles Raymond is the water bearer. He is working with the islanders to =
develop running water systems, one village at a time. A collaboration =
transcends religion and money, it has contributed to the development of =
a direct democracy. This beautiful film lets the islanders tell their =
stories, in their own words, to become an open look at how results can =
be achieved through generosity.=20
=20
32 years of dictatorship left the country of Indonesia underdeveloped =
and severely deprived economically. But a revolution is now underway, =
shaped from the ground up. (2007, 52 min)
