FLOW: For Love of Water
Director Irena Salina’s award-winning documentary FLOW: For Love of Water is an investigation into 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. Learn how citizens around the world have joined forces to protect the streams, rivers, and lakes they love and come be inspired to love and protect our beloved watersheds and the Chesapeake Bay!
