Synopsis

Water is the very essence of life. It sustains every living being on this planet and without it, there would be nothing? FLOW - Irena Salina¿ award-winning documentary investigates 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¿ 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 ¿AN ANYONE REALLY OWN WATER?
