Flow the Film

Excerpt taken from the http://www.flowthefilm.com:

Flow is 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.

Excerpt taken from the Huffington Post:

Salina’s film, which was an official Sundance ’08 selection and comes out in theaters September 12th in Los Angeles and New York and on September 19th in San Francisco, Berkeley, San Diego and Wa. D.C., focuses on the politics of water and the threat to our future, for both rich and poor nations, unless the emergence of a dominating world water cartel, intent on the privatization of water, is thwarted.

Documentary is produced by Steven Starr and also focuses on solutions to the crisis by highlighting the people and institutions developing new technologies that could offer a practical turnaround from where we’re headed. Interviewees include T. Boone Pickens.
