Projects: Documentary Film - "The Monsoon Sorrow"

Members of SPADE have come to realize that flood has received neither adequate focus nor appropriate attention from any quarter. The government approach so far has been relief-oriented rather than disaster management. We believe that a long-term approach is necessary, one that focuses on building victims' capacity to withstand the effects of flood. Fund is needed for immediate relief of the victims as well as to undertake activities related to disaster management.

In order to the depict the miseries of flood in its existing realities, as well as to focus on the need for proper flood management, SPADE produced a documentary of 30 minutes duration, titled “The Monsoon Sorrow” to project the problem to the outside world. We also expect to generate fund by marketing this documentary, so as to invest in diverse activities beneficial to the flood affected people.
