About the Documentary

Our Waters in Common is a movie exploring the state of our Tasman environment. The film examines the amazing things that rivers provide us, the issues they face, and how communities and agencies are working together to improve them.

Riding on the back of a big water quality reporting effort, the movie was a year in the making and was helped by a huge volunteer effort.

The beauty and diversity of the district’s  rivers shines through and the stories of so many good people working to improve our rivers’ health are warmly and poignantly portrayed.

With such a wonderful community in Tasman looking after our rivers, it is hard not to be encouraged.

While you are bound to learn lots, the film presents the information in a very engaging and easily-understood way.
