FLOW – For Love Of Water (2008)

S številnimi nagradami nagrajen dokumentarec Irene Salina, raziskuje problem na področje pitne vode, ki ga strokovnjaki označujejo, kot najpomembnejši političen in okoljevarstven problem v 21. Stoletju. Salina niza argumente proti rastoči privatizaciji izginjajočih svetovnih zalog sveže vode z nepopustljivim seciranjem politike, onesnaževanja, človekovih pravic in vzpona tiranskega vodnega kartela. Intervjuji z znanstveniki in aktivisti na pronicljiv način razodevajo hitro poglabljajočo se krizo globalnih in človeških razsežnosti. Film razkriva številne vladne in korporativne krivce grozečega prisvajanja vode, medtem ko se sprašuje, ali si vodo sploh lahko lastimo. Film prav tako predstavi praktične rešitve, kjer so ljudje in institucije s pomočjo novo razvitih tehnologij naredili uspešen globalen in gospodarski preobrat.

Irena Salina’s award-winning documentary investigation into what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century – The World Water Crisis. Salina builds a case against the growing privatization of the world’s dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel.Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis, at both the global and human scale, and the film introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab, while begging the question ‘ Can anyone really own water? ‘ Beyond identifying the problem, FLOW also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions providing practical solutions to the water crisis and those developing new technologies, which are fast becoming blueprints for a successful global and economic turnaround.

During the cotton production, plenty of pesticides are used, even such poisons which were used as chemical weapons. Many of these pesticides are banned in Europe, but still used and produced by Bayer in India. In the cotton belt of India, they are the number one killer of farmers: caught in the vicious circle of debt commit suicide. Hundreds of people die of poisonous during spraying season. The residues of the poison reach European consumers, and enter their bodies through the skin. The only way is organic cotton!
