“Flow: For Love of Water”/ Wem gehört das Wasser?

2008 , » ENVIRONMENT  –  93 MIN (English)/ 2013, Umwelt – 45min (Deutsch)

This is number nineteen of the ” One documentary per week series”.

Every Sunday I post one documentary to watch during the week. Each film is about topics that I think everyone should have awareness about.
Soon I will start posting a whole series of documentaries that focus on solutions – films that show people and projects that are already changing the world!

Take a look at the best documentary website!
Films for actionIt is easy to forget the concerns of the world in our daily lives and hard to grasp the big picture in these hyper complex times. Too easily it can be overseen how our day to day actions and inactions repeated by many have profound impacts on the globe and all its inhabitants at large.

Taking at least an hour every week to learn something new or to be inspired or to be touched, is a great investment of our precious life time!

Often the solutions are just around the bend and start in our own backyards and with our day to day choices! “Think global – act local” is more true and important than ever!

I want to invite everyone into sharing feedback and opinions or to start discussions and to share links of interesting projects that deal with those issues and that are part of the solution rather than part of the problem and share this with everyone that could be interested!
Enjoy watching!

Wem gehört das Wasser?


Flow: For Love of Water

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.
