In 1993, a cyclone destroyed the water supply system in Nanngu, a remote village in the Solomon Islands. With only one tap for the entire village, life was very hard.

Clips shot with GoPro Hero3. First 2 clips 1080p 30fps. Last clip 2.7k 24 fps. Edited in iMovie 10.0.1 which simply does not function!!! I could not color correct, I could not properly trim clips, I could not adjust font size, style, or color. Many, many other aspects of iMovie 10.0.1 DO NOT WORK! I intend to reload all the original files into iMovie 9 which works very well. (c) Craig Capehart
