People in the Mekong basin depend on the river for food and livelihood. The Mekong sustains 60 million people living in its basin. The Mun River has the largest basin area of all the Mekong's tributaries in Thailand. The Pak Mun Dam was 5.5 km from the mouth of the Mun River. Fish disappeared from the Mun River after the dam was built. This documentary film was produced to share with the people living in the Mekong Basin the impacts on nature and livelihood brought by dam construction. We hope the film will help our audience to have prior knowledge on how dams may alter natural environment and people's lives. By understanding dams' impacts through this film, we hope people will be able to see different aspects of development projects, consider both positive and negative changes beforehand and choose the environment and livelihood best for each community.
