Water Lives to screen at the 2015 UK Green Film Festival

Water Lives is a science advocacy animation about the important life underpinning and sustaining our freshwater ecosystems. It has been selected for screening alongside the documentary H2Omx at the 2015 UK Green Film Festival.

Water Lives was produced in 2012 by Rob St John, a former student of the MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management at the School of Geography and the Environment, and course director Dr Paul Jepson. A collaboration between artists and scientists, Water Lives shows how freshwater is a living, dynamic system inhabited by beautiful, important organisms largely unseen by the naked eye.

The curious and otherworldly physical form of freshwater organisms provides artistic inspiration for the animation, which also features a series of haiku about freshwater ecosystems written by acclaimed environmental poet John Barlow.
