Conservation isn't always the common thread between the tribes, farmers, and environmental organizations. COMMON GROUND shows how water can bring opposing interests towards finding common ground.

Director's Bio:

It’s rare that someone finds their passion at such a young age and follows it doggedly, unwilling to be diverted by adolescent whims. But just like her images, Michelle stayed focused. She went to USC Cinema and landed jobs at National Geographic, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Showtime. In 2005, Michelle founded Wahoo Films to help organizations better connect with their audience. Her genuine passion for her customers is evident in the videos she produces for them.
