About Dambusters

Dam Removal Europe started officially in April of 2016 when a few organizations partnered together and began the first dam removal movement at European level. After 5 years of research DRE findings are astonishing; fantastic national river barrier removal inventories, national policies, and overall, important barrier removal successes which were not only positive for nature, but also for people.

This is why, we decided to film a selection of these great cases, and show the rest of the world that freeing rivers from barriers it is much more than fish and, we all need to know.

DamBusters is a documentary which follows the journey around the world of Spanish engineer, Pao Fernandez Garido, meeting river heroes in their passionate quest to restore their rivers and ecosystems.

If you are interested to organise a cinema screening in your country (like the ones in preparations in Germany, Finland, Austria, etc.) let me know and I will put you in contact with the filmmaker.
