FLOW: For the Love of Water
This award-winning documentary and 2008 Sundance favourite highlights the local intimacies of an emerging global catastrophe, in Africa, India, California and Canada.
With an unflinching focus on politics, pollution and human rights, FLOW: For Love of Water ensures that the precarious relationship between humanity and water can no longer be ignored. While specifics of locality and issue may differ, the message is the same; water, and our future as a species, is quickly drying up. Armed with a thirst for survival, people around the world are fighting for their birthright. www.flowthefilm.com
