From the producers of Who Killed the Electric Car, this timely documentary reveals the unregulated world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never become a commodity, water. From the plastic production to the ocean where too many bottles end up, this inspiring documentary is a powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry, caught at the intersection of big business and the publics right to water. (Atlas Pictures, USA 2009).
