In this documentary, several environmental activists like Vandana Shiva, Maude Barlow, Medha Patkar, and Rajendra Singh explain why we are facing the biggest crisis of our times.
How did a handful of corporations steal our water? Water is the very essence of life, sustaining every being on the planet. 'FLOW' confronts the disturbing reality that our crucial resource is dwindling and greed just may be the cause.
Experts label water privatization the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st century. This documentary 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. The film also introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab, while asking 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.
