How did a handful of corporations steal water?

Check out the movie trailer (Be patient and let it buff/load)

This movie, "Flow: For the Love of Water" is excellent. I saw it over the summer and haven't purchased bottled water since. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone, and especially anyone with a bottled water habit.

Another excellent movie about water privatization is "The Water Front," which deals with very local water issues and environmental justice in Highland Park, Michigan.

Where would I find the full movie "Flow"? Could I buy it?

Flow isn't out on DVD yet, but it is premiering in cities around the country over the next few weeks. Looks like its coming to Cleveland soon!

I think a lot of the screenings will also have panels afterwords, which will make them especially worth going to.

Every Drop for Sale: Our Desperate Battle Over Water
by Jeffrey Rothfeder

This book is an excellent companion to the topic of Flow. Your library might have it for loan. I recommend it.

I found your site Sustaino from your comment on Crunchy Chicken's blog.
