The Fight for Europe’s Last Wild Rivers

Directed by Britton Caillouette / 2019 / 43 Min

The Balkan Peninsula is home to the last wild rivers in Europe. However, a deluge of more than 3,000 proposed hydropower developments threaten to destroy the culture and ecology of this forgotten region. Blue Heart documents the battle for the largest undammed river in Europe, Albania’s Vjosa, the effort to save the endangered Balkan lynx in Macedonia, and the women of Kruščica, Bosnia and Herzegovina,  spearheading a months-long, 24/7 protest to protect their community’s only source of drinking water.
