Alternative title
Water Goddess and the Computer, The
Synopsis
Demonstrates how in Bali, development projects can threaten a carefully balanced ecological irrigation system that is maintained by religious authorities. A biologist and an anthropologist look at the irrigation system and by using computer models show how the traditional system works. They then present the computer model to temple priests as an aid to exploring the effect of changes in the traditional irrigation system.
