This shocking documentary sheds light on the world’s rapidly approaching water crisis.
The world’s fresh water is disappearing. As we pollute and waste away our very limited supply, corporate giants are working to make the building block of our globe a commodity, privatizing developing countries’ fresh water. In the midst of this, military control of water is rising, setting the stage for world water wars. This bracing and far-reaching film, based on a book of the same name, follows various examples of people fighting back against the powers that be – from grade school protests to court cases to revolutions. As the specters of drought and death loom, the film finds people willing to risk everything for their right to water.
