The House of Water. Episode #1 – Movies
A podcast made at and for the UN 2023 Water Conference, exploring how we can represent water at the intersection of arts, politics and science.
Representatives from states, civil society, international organizations, academia are gathering at the United Nations in New York to discuss the future of water. But who can speak on behalf of water? And how?
This first episode was recorded Sunday March 19 at the World Water Film Festival, hosted by the Columbia University. With the voices of the director of the Festival, Robert Strand, and the awarded filmmakers: you will hear about the power of the video to represent water, but also about mussels, Lego bricks and drawing flowers.
You can listen to the podcast to the link here below or on your favorite podcast platform. Enjoy!
A big thanks to Laurens Nijzink for editing the podcast, to Cristian Olmos Herrera for the logo, and to the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management for funding this project. The music that you listen to in the podcast is by a group based in New York and coincidentally called “House of Waters”. You will learn more about it in one of the next episodes. In the meantime thanks to them and to my colleague Amitangshu Acharya who made the connection.
