FLOW, the film

These facts may surprise you: 1.1 billion people live without clean drinking water.* There are over 116,000 human-made chemicals that are finding their way into public water supply systems.* Water is a $400 billion dollar global industry; the third largest behind electricity and oil.* Flow, a new film about the implications of the world water crisis, can help you wrap your head around those dismaying figures.
