Reckoning with the reality and seasonal dangers of a changing climate, 30-year old filmmaker Emmett Brennan embarks on a 200-mile trek along the iconic Los Angeles aqueduct to follow the water in search of solutions. He asks: what would happen if we designed our lives around water in a radically different way? Featuring music from multi Grammy-winner Jacob Collier.
Emmett sets out to walk 200 miles next to the iconic but aging Los Angeles aqueduct, where he encounters ecological iconoclasts, indigenous voices, and permaculture designers who are challenging the status quo on how we use Earth’s most precious resource. The film delves into a profound and far reaching look at our relationship with water and offers a vision for radically redesigning our lives around it.
Reflection: a A Walk With Water takes a refreshing approach to confronting our current environmental and systematic troubles, showing how Los Angeles and other parts of California are bellwethers for change.
The film features original music from multiple Grammy winning musical artist Jacob Collier who is Executive Music Producer of the film. With voices and stories that speak to today’s younger generations, Reflection is both a personal meditation on water as well as a practical road map for positive change.
