Water as a Resource

It is not uncommon to hear that someone is a fan of Leonardo DiCaprio, but hearing that Leonardo DiCaprio is someone else’s fan – now, that is quite a conversation starter, especially if his heroes are housewives from a small village in Bosnia and Herzegovina. For over 500 days and nights, a group of women, and some men, defended their river Kruščica from small hydropower, having in turn earned the nickname of the Brave Women of Kruščica. The Hollywood celebrity was so impressed that he congratulated them on their fight himself. Today’s episode is water as a resource, where we explore its two perspectives – water as hydropower and water as a source of life.

I never asked why my grandmother Mercedes speaks Russian, German, French and Spanish perfectly. Perhaps because I sensed that this why was marked by a delicate history… A history of childhoods without parents. A story of farewells, of reunions, of escapes and persecutions. A story marked by the history of 20th century Europe: the Spanish Civil War, the Second World War, and the Cold War. I never asked why. But now… I need to break that wall. I need to understand which parts of those wars, of those untold stories, still live in me. Join me on this journey through the past to understand where we came from, who we are, and where we are heading.
