BRIDES OF THE WELL
Our Role: Composer
“Growing up in India, acclaimed film director (and friend of ICTUS) Shekhar Kapur saw the striking contrast between those struggling to find a reliable, clean water source, while across the road, wealthier homes had endless supplies on tap.
Collaborating with WaterAid, Shekhar tells the story of two teenage girls, Saraswati and Paras in Northern India, who walk 8 hours a day to collect water for their new husbands. Although a fictional story, it is based on the very real, interlinked issues of poverty, lack of access to water and child marriage.”
