"Saving the Mekong" produced by Eureka Films portrays the lives of fishers in the Siphandone area of Southern Laos. The documentary reveals how their future is threatened by a plan to build a large dam across the Mekong River that would block major fish migrations and puts at risk already endangered species, such as the Irrawaddy dolphin. Includes an interview with Pianporn Deetes, formerly of Living Rivers Siam, and now the Thailand Campaign Coordinator for International Rivers.
