Join Western Washington University's Students for Sustainable Water and Fairhaven College's Applied Human Ecology class for a screening of Flow: For the Love of Water. This event is co-sponsored by Transition Whatcom.
The movie is about an hour and a half long and there will be time for discussion afterwards. It is absolutely free, so come get educated, become engaged and enjoy.
"Irena Salina's highly acclaimed documentary investigation into what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century - The World Water Crisis.
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.
Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis, at both the global and human scale, and the film introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab, while begging 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."
