Water and Flow

I listen to Bob Edwards Weekend on NPR some Sundays, and one interview caught my attention. Irena Salina has completed a documentary, called “Flow,” on the world water crisis. Her big question: Can anyone really own water? I was particularly troubled by her statistics: over a billion people on this planet do not have access to safe, clean drinking water. Quotes from the New York Times online review:““Flow” dives into our planet’s most essential resource—and third-largest industry—to find pollution, scarcity, human suffering, and corporate profit. And that’s just in the United States.”“In South Africa, villagers drink from stagnant ponds, unable to pay for the water that once was free, and protesters in Bolivia—where waste from a slaughterhouse is dumped into Lake Titicaca—brave gunfire to demand unrestricted access to potable water.””Flow” has won awards at Sundance and other film festivals.
