REVIEWS

This story shows
the power that communities can have when we organize and advocate for our own well-being, and how positive impacts can radiate throughout our environment.

Elyse DeFranco

- Science Writer

 It brings out the beautiful duality of the notion of 'giving voice to the voiceless', where the community speaks for the endangered salamander and the salamander provides the soul for the community's fight as an indicator species of water quality and a symbol of resistance.

Dr. Nitya Mohanty

-Researcher

"A refreshing and enlightening film that showed the devastating impact of fracking literally through a new lens, and at the same time offered an optimistic inspiration for the power of humankind.
