FLOW: For Love of Water

Am highly recommending this.

Here is the website for the FLOW water documentary. It's won countless prizes and if it stops you from drinking tap water disguised as spring water (Remember Pepsi's confession that aquafina was nothing more than tap water?) then we will at least have begun the battle.

Water is the very essence of life, sustaining every being on the planet. 'Flow' confronts the disturbing reality that our crucial resource is dwindling and greed just may be the cause

Click on the youtube video twice. Sometimes blogger and youtube are a bit iffy. If you have problems with it, go to the youtube url.

Salina's award-winning documentary investigation into what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century - The World Water Crisis.

Salina builds a case against the growing privatization of the world's dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel.

Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis, at both the global and human scale, and the film introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab, while begging the question 'CAN ANYONE REALLY OWN WATER?'

Beyond identifying the problem, FLOW also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions providing practical solutions to the water crisis and those developing new technologies, which are fast becoming blueprints for a successful global and economic turnaround.
