Waterlight – the story of an Enligish chalk stream

The sunlit river Mel as it winds through Cambridgeshire

Waterlight, is a film project inspired by a chalk stream in Cambridgeshire. Waterlight began as a collaboration between poet and writer Clare Crossman and filmmaker James Murray-White, and the project team has now grew to include local expert Bruce Huett and filmmaker Nigel Kinnings.

The finished film is wonderful evocation of a particular kind of eco system which is under threat – pure chalk streams are very rare world wide and England has a large proportion of the surviving examples. The movie features interviews with local people who live along the stream, beautiful photography and an evocative poetic commentary by local poet Clare Crossman who sadly passed away recently.

Urthona is very pleased to feature this ecological film and we hope to take this further by having a feature based on the work in art ecology and climate change being undertaken by the talented team behind it… watch this space for further news…
