The film follows activist Mark Angelo as he visits various countries–India, China, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and locales in Africa–where tanneries and textile factories use toxic chemicals in garment production and pour the waste into rivers, resulting in severe pollution. Angelo talks with owners and workers who usually deny that processes they employ are doing ecological damnage, although the visual evidence indicates otherwise, as do witnesses who testify to the harmful impact that the pollutants have had on nearby residents, including children. Riverblue also includes interviews with some designers who were instrumental in concocting the chemical cocktails used in producing the clothing (and now regret the result), researchers who are devising safer (if more expensive) means of achieving the same effects and supporters of a Greenpeace campaign to detoxify polluted rivers. The question the film inevitably raises is whether consumers will be willing to spend more for clothes in order to protect the environment–laying down a challenge to viewers to join a crusade to save the planet.

Riverblue also includes interviews with some designers who were instrumental in concocting the chemical cocktails used in producing the clothing (and now regret the result), researchers who are devising safer (if more expensive) means of achieving the same effects and supporters of a Greenpeace campaign to detoxify polluted rivers. The question the film inevitably raises is whether consumers will be willing to spend more for clothes in order to protect the environment–laying down a challenge to viewers to join a crusade to save the planet. Presenting both the full-length version and a 52-minute abridgement, this is recommended.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv id=\"pageContainer1\" data-page-number=\"1\" data-loaded=\"true\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv data-canvas-width=\"745.4456470588237\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"page\" title=\"Page 2\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"layoutArea\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"column\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cstyle type=\"text\/css\"\u003e\u003c!--\ntd {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}\n--\u003e\u003c\/style\u003e"}

The youngest of seven children, Rahman (born in the 1930s) was always fascinated by art. Her work focuses on her folk designs, and over the years she has re ned domestic kantha embroidery into a fine art, with her pieces in museums worldwide. Today, no longer able to draw, Rahman wants other artists to step forward and work with kantha. VERDICT An inspirational tale of one woman’s artistic journey and how she ultimately helped hundreds if not thousands of women to thrive.

Rahman; her storytelling designs in kantha, a traditional craft of embroidery; and how she taught poverty-stricken women in Bangladesh to embroider her designs into works of art \u003cspan\u003efor profit. The youngest of seven children, Rahman (born in the 1930s) was always fascinated by art. Her work focuses on her folk designs, and over the years she has re ned domestic kantha embroidery into a fine art, with her pieces in museums worldwide. Today, no longer able to draw, Rahman wants other artists to step forward and work with kantha. VERDICT An inspirational tale of one woman’s artistic journey and how she ultimately helped hundreds if not thousands of women to thrive. Will appeal to those interested in art, design, and culture.  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cem\u003e– Library Journal, Denise A. Garofalo Mount Saint Mary Coll.
