Drowned Land is a feature documentary that shares the stories of a group of water protectors determined to preserve the lifeline of their community and end a cycle of environmental exploitation on the Kiamichi River. Recently, the state of Oklahoma signed an agreement to divert up to 85% of the water from the most ecologically diverse river in Oklahoma – the Kiamichi, located deep in the Choctaw Nation. The Kiamichi and its tributaries have a history of exploitation with disastrous consequences to the community and the environment. The construction of Sardis Dam in the Kiamichi watershed by the US Army Corps of Engineers flooded the town of Sardis and displaced its residents – all that is left is the Sardis cemetery, now an island in the middle of the lake.
