5.0 out of 5 stars Predatory corporations vs. engaged citizens. November 24, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There's a battle going on for the source of life, water. Our corporate media isn't saying much about it, but across the globe citizens are struggling against transnational corporations like Nestle and Vivendi which are seizing the dwindling fresh water supplies. It's an absolutely critical topic that this film explains in an informative and inspiring fashion. "Flow" takes us to Bolivia Cochabamba!: Water War in Bolivia, South Africa, India Water Wars: Privatization, Pollution, and Profit, Michigan and beyond; and introduces us to the people who are being harmed by corporate tyrannies that are claiming the water of their land. Big businesses are making a fortune as they pollute or divert water supplies, or bottle it for sale at prices that the world's poor cannot afford.
People in the wealthy nations may feel they are immune from this crisis, but they too are being ripped off by the bottled water racket and poisoned by the continuing toxification of water with synthetic chemicals Toxic Legacy: Synthetic Toxins in the Food, Water and Air of American Cities.
"Flow" features many heroes we don't yet know the names of, like Vandana Shiva and Maude Barlow; but we are fortunate they have been slowing the march of the corporate fundamentalists The Corporation. People concerned about health and justice will want to contribute to the cause of water rights for humans, not for CEOs. Buying and sharing this film is a great first step.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pay attention !!!! January 17, 2009
Format:DVD
I work in the water field where protecting our water supply and paying attention to when and how it is used, and this video was even an eye opener for me. The case for greed is the platform at hand as always, the almighty dollar. The problem comes down to demand. If we as stewards of the earth stop buying the products, i.e. bottled water, the demand would dwindle and the lack of attractiveness of the industry's drain on the earth's water would help preserve this natural resouce for generations to come.
Walk away from, Coca Cola, Nestle and Pepsi bottled water. Look at the label. Pay attention and just do your part.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reasons Why You Should Watch "FLOW: For Love Of Water" October 21, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Length: 5:29 Mins
The film "FLOW: For Love Of Water" is one of the most important water films of recent years. If you have any interest in your health, the health of your children and of our global civilization - then you should borrow FLOW from your local library or purchase it through AMAZON. In the film FLOW you will learn how over 30,000 people die each day from water-related diseases, and how contaminated water is one of the greatest killers of people in history. You will learn how birth defects and other health problems are substantially higher in areas located near large agricultural zones.

Flow will also bring you up-to-date on what is inside the bottled water you drink, how you can save money and by drinking tap water, and how the some water bottlers are taking control of water sources while destroying ecosystems. The film informs us about how over 30,000 people die each day from water-related diseases. In the film we learn how birth defects and other health problems are substantially higher in areas located near large agricultural zones.

In the film FLOW you will learn how control of water translates into power through economic control of money, how control of water translates into the power to control people in small communities, major cities and even entire countries - and, how control of water translated into ultimate power over life and death - which flows into which areas of the world will have healthy and wealthy people with long life spans - and which areas will have poverty and unhealthy people with short life spans. In other words, a subtle form of planned genocide.

The foundations of the information provided by FLOW can be found in books such as,

It's not very often that tears start rolling down my cheeks while watching a political documentary! Flow was that moving! A film full of both the very best and the very worst humanity has to offer.

I'm an environmental activist and have been following global water issues for years. What makes Flow so absolutely wonderful is that it covers it all. It's like watching a prosecutor make an indictment: needless water contamination by some rather nasty chemicals, such as pesticides, herbicides and pharmaceuticals; harm caused by World Bank & IMF policies; gross abuses of human rights by smug transnational water corporations throughout the world, including the USA; harm caused by damming many of the world's largest rivers; preventable diseases and deaths caused by polluted water, such a cholera; hormonal changes in fish and amphibians.

On the other hand you see some incredibly brave people stand up to these mind-boggling abuses of power. Even an extremely elderly disciple of Mahatma Gandhi teaches the next generation of activists how to be effective. Plenty of brilliant and appropriate, low-technology solutions are shown. It does not take huge transnational corporations to assure the delivery of safe drinking water, which is (pardon the pun) made crystal clear!

Flow is one of the most outstanding documentaries I have had the privilege to watch in my entire life! My hat's off to all those who made this magnificent film possible!
