Flow: For the Love of Water is 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.
Flow will be airing Thursday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m. only at Huntingtons Cinema Arts Centre, 423 Park Ave., Huntington, NY. The showing is co-presented by Sustainable Long Island and Cinema Arts Centre, and the screening will be followed by a panel discussion and reception.
Guest speakers include: Steve Jones, Suffolk County Water Authority; Sarah Lansdale, Sustainable Long Island; Adrienne Esposito, Citizens Campaign for the Environment.
