The first film of Reel to Real: Cities, Health and Environment, is FLOW: For Love of Water on Tuesday, October 12 at 2:30 in Allen Auditorium.

This is an informal film series to encourage dialogue and debate.

All events are open to the community.

Location: Allen Auditorium, Allen Library

Time: 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.

A synopsis of the film follows:

Irena Salinas’ documentary is about the global crisis we face as Earth’s fresh water supply constantly diminishes. The film presents top experts and advocates to show us that every aspect of human life is effected by pollution, wastefulness, privatization and corporate greed as it relates to a natural resource that’s more valuable than oil. The film shows in no uncertain terms that if we continue to abuse our water supply, Earth will become uninhabitable and humankind will become extinct. The investigation points fingers at water companies such as Nestle, Vivendi, Thames, Suez, Coca Cola and Pepsi.
