Irena Salina’s award-winning 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.

This could happen on a global scale.
The World Bank decided that all water had to be privatised in a large region of Bolivia. This is how the San Francisco based company Bechtel gained control over the Bolivian water supply. Citizens were not even allowed to gather rain water and were charged huge amounts of money for basic water. Revolution ensued.
The rest of the video details the exact workings of a fascist regime.

These are historic times in Bolivia with Evo Morales, the country’s first ever indigenous president, being sworn into office in January 2006. Many of the reasons for his election victory can be attributed to a growing resistance to the economic model that Bolivia has been following since the 1980s. Characterised by the large scale privatisation of state owned enterprise and opening up of domestic markets, the policy has been blamed for huge rises in unemployment and continuing poverty. Large scale protests against water and gas privatisations in particular fuelled Evo Morales’ victory.

In Bolivia, it is estimated that over 1/3 of the population faces a daily struggle to get enough water. The country now recognizes water as a basic human right, and has struggled in the past with multinational corporations attempting to make a profit off the people’s needs. Tami Woronoff and Jennifer Utz were in Bolivia recently and filed this report on the ongoing fight for water.
