“Can anyone really own water?” This is the question that director Irena Salina poses about the world’s freshwater supply in her documentary film, FLOW , currently showing in select cities .

Salina looks at political and economic reasons for what some experts call the “World Water Crisis” of millions of people living without access to clean drinking water. Her investigation focuses on human rights and pollution.

Salina, a France-born journalist, reports about the privatization of the freshwater supply and shows how different organizations address the issue.

The 84-minute film premiered during the 2008 Sundance Film Festival , and has since won several awards, including Best Documentary at the 2008 Vail International Film Festival .
