Flow: For Love of Water

84 minutes

Director Irena Salina juggles a staggering amount of information in this smart advocacy documentary, an urgent call to protect the earth's freshwater supplies. In the U.S. she exposes the widespread use of the agricultural pesticide atrazine—a Swiss-manufactured chemical banned in the European Union because it induces sex changes in fish and amphibians—and shows how grassroots activists in Michigan blocked Nestle from pilfering from aquifers that sustain local economies. In the La Paz region of Bolivia, authorities are forced to fill in a river that's been destroyed by the bloody runoff from nearby slaughterhouses. On the brighter side, the Indian government has checked infant mortality and rejuvenated the village of Bomminapadu by treating local water with ultraviolet rays that kill pathogens, a technology that costs locals a mere $2 per person annually.
