Fly Ash Over India

Background

ESG extended research support in the making of the environmental video documentary "Fly Ash Over India", by Siobhan Wall, formerly with London Guildhall University. This documentary assesses the environmental impacts of locating thermal power plants in the ecologically sensitive Dakshina Kannada district, and specifically addresses the manner in which Cogentrix has violated local social and environmental concerns. The documentary was premiered on World Environment Day, 1998 in collaboration with The British Library (Bangalore), and subsequent premier shows were held in the Visweswaraya Industrial and Technological Museum (Bangalore), Sandesha Foundation (Mangalore), MGM College (Manipal). The documentary was reported on Star News as part of their observation of World Environment Day 1998. Documentary copies are available for sale - please email esg@esgindia.org
