FLOW: FOR LOVE OF WATER (Irena Salina, U.S.). 93 minutes. Some subtitles. April 24, 6:30 pm; April 26, 3:30 pm, Bloor. Rating: NNNN
Director Irena Salina and crew go all over the world to track grassroots attempts to reclaim water resources.
A small Michigan community fights off Coca-Cola, which got an all-you-can-drain sweet deal for a grand total of $60,000, just one example of the many outrageous ways water resources are being privatized.
Flow also samples some of the inspiring activism that could save what Maude Barlow, who's featured prominently here, calls blue gold.
Flow's timeliness earns it an extra N. Now that Canada has made news in a shameful way -- we officially opposed the UN resolution to declare access to clean water a human right -- we all need to see this movie.
