Overview

Irena Salina directs this feature-length documentary about the industry and consumption of humankind's most precious resource: water. As African villages survive on potentially toxic water supplies out of sheer necessity, Salina explores how the corporate structure has come to control humanity's water supply, creating a dire situation that experts have come to refer to as the World Water Crisis. With issues of pollution, politics, and human rights all coming to a head with the issue, Salina points the finger at the specific corporate and governmental figures responsible for the crisis, and takes a look at how grassroots organizations work to fight the increasing privatization of water, hoping to end the imbalance in access to the precious resource that has already had mortal consequences for so many. ~ Cammila Collar

    This movie is one of my favorite documentaries of all time...

    I loved this movie so much, I wrote a paper about the [negative] impact of water privatization on communities for English 102. I got an "A" on it, at least. This movie was fascinating, sad, and moving. I honestly don't have any problems with it except that I remember it stopping quite abruptly. It's definitely one of my favorites.

    I will never look at bottled water the same. Since watching this movie I understand the blessing we have in the USA, to be able to wash a car when people are placed in lottery's to get water. With all the money being spent on the banking systems it seems to me that this world should be able to figure out how to have drinkable water for the residence of our planet. Great movie
