Movies That Matter at UUF

Flow:  For Love of Water is the next film in the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship’s “Movies That Matter” series. The film will be shown Tuesday, August 18 at 7 pm.

This 2008 award-winning documentary is an investigation of what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century – the world water crisis. Director Irena 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.

From both local and global perspectives, this film examines the harsh realities behind the mounting water crisis. Learn how politics, pollution and human rights are intertwined in this important issue that affects every being on earth. With water drying up around the world and the future of human lives at stake, the film urges a call to arms before more of our most precious natural resource evaporates or is extracted from dwindling aquifers.

Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis, at both the global and human scale. 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.
