For the Love of Water

Water is the topic of the next Movies That Matter series sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County (UUFDC) February 17. Flow – For the Love of Water, Irena Salinas’ documentary is about the global crisis we face as Earth’s fresh water supply constantly diminishes. The film presents top experts and advocates to show us that every aspect of human life is affected by pollution, wastefulness, privatization and corporate greed as it relates to a natural resource that’s more valuable than oil. The film shows in no uncertain terms that if we continue to abuse our water supply, Earth will become uninhabitable and humankind will become extinct.

Learn how politics, pollution and human rights are intertwined in this important issue that affects every being on Earth.

A Drinker’s Guide to Pure Water, authored by Zalman Saperstein of Fish Creek, is an informative supplement to the information of this month’s movie.

The next movie in the series will be Why We Fight by Eugene Jarecki on March 17.

Movies That Matter is a monthly series sponsored by the UUFDC’s Social Responsibility Committee on the third Tuesday each month at 7 pm. All films are free and open to the public. Discussion follows. The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42, Ephraim.
