Producer Andy Clark is an ecologist and filmmaker who, like many, only became fully aware of the prevalence and severity of flooding as an issue in the UK after the devastating floods of the winter of 2015/2016.
Getting to know more and more people who’s lives had been turned upside down by the floods of that winter, Andy witnessed an inspirational drive in people to do whatever they could to protect themselves and their local environment against the threat of future flooding.
But where do you start when you want to strengthen an entire community’s, or an entire catchment’s resilience to flooding? Andy started producing High Water Common Ground, which has subsequently developed into all of High Water Film, to help people find the answers to those questions.
High Water Common Ground is a feature documentary film exploring community-focussed natural flood risk management, produced with the official support of a number of respected UK organisations, and will be released later this year.
The broader platform that is High Water Film is an evolving and expansive resource for sharing information and inspiration, designed for users at the community, practitioner and policy-maker level. Hear community voices sharing their experiences and expertise of Natural Flood Risk Management.
