Irena Salina’s award-winning documentary builds a case against the growing privatization of the world’s dwindling freshwater 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 the human scale. The film introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water arms race, and highlights the people and institutions addressing the problem. All the while, it begs the question “Can anyone really own water?”
