Trailer for the documentary Buriganga.

In the local tongue, the name of Bangladesh's Buriganga River means "higher life". Since time immemorial, countless Bangladeshi's have relied on the river as the source of their livelihood. But times are changing, as Michelle Coomber's short film illustrates. Wastewater from many local factories and the detritus that people leave behind is polluting the river to such an extent that it is threatening the way of life for those who live on its banks. Despite everything, however, there are still some who feel their fate is tied to the river: "We are here, because the river is here."
