For decades, Lithuanian scientist Aušra Revutaite has been living 11,000 feet above sea level on the Tuyuksu Glacier of Central Asia bordering Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and the autonomous Chinese region of Xinjiang. All alone with a dog and cat, she turned a Soviet-era research station into a home and a lab for recording local gradations of global warming in this otherworldly landscape of melting ice, underground streams, caves, and stony mountains. (Audrius Stonys, 2017, 56 minutes) Shown in association with Films Across Borders: Stories of Water, and with thanks to Linda Lilienfeld, Let's Talk About Water
