THE WORLD IS OVER-ARMED AND PEACE IS UNDER-FUNDEDThe Secretary-General of the United Nations
Last month, competing interests prevented agreement on a much-needed treaty that would have reduced the appalling human cost of the poorly regulated international arms trade. Meanwhile, nuclear disarmament efforts remain stalled, despite strong and growing global popular sentiment in support of this cause.
The award-winning documentary FLOW investigates what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century: the World Water Crisis. It builds the case against the many ways in which the world's dwindling fresh water supply is being privatised across the globe. 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. The film is also a call-to-action, urging its viewers to stand up for their right to clean water.
