"Thousands have lived without love, not one without water." – W.H. Auden
With this quote, so begins Irena Salina's Flow, a documentary that's awash with shots of gushing water. But it paints a dire portrait of the world's fresh-water resources, which are rapidly running out. Drought and pollution have reduced our supply, while privatization is threatening the rest. Over a five-year period, Salina traveled all over the world, from France, India and Canada, to the United States, where rocket fuel has made its way into tap water, and Bolivia, where a river runs red with blood from a slaughterhouse.

The film marks the second documentary from France-born, New York-based Irena Salina, following her award-winning Ghost Bird: The Life and Art of Judith Deim.
