FLOW: FOR LOVE OF WATER

I highly recommend the documentary 'FLOW: FOR LOVE OF WATER' - Please watch it, tell your friends, family and everybody else you know about it too. SPREAD THE WORD.


Water, earth's natural resource and source of life, should NOT NOR EVER be treated as a luxury to anyone any where. This documentary carefully examines how in various places, specifically lesser developed areas, the world's least fortunate people have become easy targets by greedy resource-sucking corporations. They (water-bottling multi-national corps) come in under false pretext of community saviors, just to set up shop, and gorge the land of water. Not only do they rob the world's natural resource, they have the audacity to charge people who can barely afford food to survive on each day, for their own land's water. After watching this, it'll make you think twice about buying bottled H2O.


Here is the film's official description:

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 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.
