From the Mountains to the Sea: Concerns for the threatened Colorado River Basin drives Indigenous Leaders from Arizona on a remarkable journey to meet the Maori peoples of the Whanganui River. After winning a 175-year battle, the Whanganui River Tribes inspired the world when New Zealand law recognized their river as a living entity. A powerful documentary of two peoples who share one dream to protect their rivers for all of us.
