"/Water is the sleeping giant issue of the 21st Century and we all need
to wake up about it. FLOW opens our eyes about the greatest threat of
our time - the global water crisis. It is a compelling and passionate
film. Its engaging narrative will grip the viewer./"
Irena 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
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.
Also, the Ecuador water project that Kendra Johnson of the MIT Spherio radio show works with is speaking at tomorrow night's showing of the film FLOW in One Kendall Square. http://www.flowthefilm.com/
