Where There’s A Well…

Where There’s A Well… is a feature documentary following the journey of a water pump from factory to Malawian village, exploring the impact clean water has on communities and individuals as they work to improve their lives.
The water pumps are provided by Wells For Zoe, a charity set up by John & Mary Coyne, a retired couple from Dublin. Frustrated at the failings of large, multinational charities, they decided to “do something” about the water situation in Malawi and ended up unwittingly pioneering a radical new model for how aid can work in Africa.
Filled with music, stunning imagery and all manner of funny and mad characters (not least John & Mary themselves), this documentary will change the way you think about “the African problem”.

The film was entirely self-funded and was screened at a number of high-profile festivals around Ireland and abroad.
