article imageWater Film to star at DNC & RNC

By waterfall     Aug 24, 2008 in Environment
For the first time in U.S. political history, an environmental film named FLOW is being shown at both the Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention. "FLOW" is the acronym representing "For Love Of Water."
Environmentalist, actor/director Robert Redford says: "Water is the sleeping giant issue of the 21st Century and we all need to wake up about it. FLOW opens our eyes about the greatest threat of our time - the global water crisis. It is a compelling and passionate film. Its engaging narrative will grip the viewer."
Irena Salina's award-winning water documentary is an investigation into what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century - The World Water Crisis. FLOW will soon be in theaters in over 25 cities across America, and will be available on DVD this December.
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. FLOW the film also introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab, while begging the question "CAN ANYONE REALLY OWN WATER?"
Interviews with scientists and activists, such as award-winning water researcher and author, William E. Marks, intelligently reveal the water crisis. Marks is renowned for his book, Water Voices from Around The World, that won 1st Place in the world's largest international book contest as the book, Most Likely to Save the Planet.
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.
