35mm presentation - Water is the essence of life, sustaining every living being on this planet. But the global water supply isn't just at risk, it's already in crisis. Director Irena Salina reveals the emerging global catastrophe: African plumbers reconnect shantytown water pipes under cover of darkness to ensure a community's survival; a Californian scientist forces awareness of shockingly toxic public water sources; a CEO argues privatization is the wave of the future; a Canadian author uncovers corporate profiteering. With an unflinching focus on politics, pollution and human rights, Flow 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. Unless we instigate change, we face a world in which only those that can pay for their water will survive.
