Water Dwells in the Lowly Places
2016, HD video, color, 5.1 surround sound, 27:57 minutes
Water Dwells in the Lowly Places is an experimental documentary portrait of Three Gorges Dam on China’s Yangtze River. Currently the world’s largest dam and hydroelectric power station, Three Gorges Dam created a massive reservoir stretching over 400 miles. The dam project led to the disruption of an entire ecosystem, the demolition and reconstruction of cities, towns, and villages throughout the region, and the forced displacement of over a million people. Water Dwells in the Lowly Places traces this vastly altered geography through a visual and sonic engagement with the landscape along the reservoir's edge.
