1. The Story of Bottled Water – This film has spread like wildfire since premiering in March, and for good reason. In the film, director Annie Leonard and her troupe of stick figures share staggering facts about bottled water’s impact on our environment. You’ll never look at that bottle the same way again.
2. Tapped – Tapped focuses on the ugly truth behind the “big business” of bottled water. The film also delves into the impact bottled water has on our own health, and discusses the danger existing in BPA and other chemicals that have been found in some plastic bottles.
3. FlOW: For Love of Water – The award-winning documentary investigates the many ways that water is being privatized across the globe. The film is also a call-to-action, urging its viewers to stand up for their right to clean water.
4. Thirst – Thirst investigates the privatization of water. The film follows grassroots initiatives in India, Bolivia and Stockton, California as activists unite against the global water privatization.
5. The Water Front – If you think that water issues primarily apply to third-world countries, think again. The citizens of Highland Park, Michigan are also fighting to keep their water from being privatized. With residents of the city receiving water bills as high as $10,000, you can understand why the film begs the question: “What if you lived by the largest body of fresh water in the world but could no longer afford to use it?”
