“Elemental” follows three outsiders who are obsessed by nature and driven by a deep desire to change the status quo. Rajendra Singh, an Indian government official gone rogue, mounts a national crusade to save the Ganges River. Activist Eriel Deranger leads a David-vs.-Goliath fight against the oil giants who are destroying her homeland in the Canadian Tar Sands. And Australian inventor Jay Harman is attempting to halve the world’s energy consumption by mimicking natural systems. Although separated by continents, each character is part of a global story about water and climate change – like the natural world, their work is interconnected. Going beyond the issues to reveal the public triumphs and emotional scars of life on the front line, “Elementals” tells an inspiring story of unsung environmental heroes.
With co-director Vaughan-Lee.
