Water. It’s the Earth’s most valuable resource. Our cities are powered by it, agriculture and other industries depend on it, and all living things need it to survive. But instead of treating it with care, we’ve allowed it to become polluted with toxic chemicals and agricultural and industrial waste. And, as this documentary demonstrates, it’s very possible that in the near future, there won’t be enough to sustain life on the planet. Director Jessica Yu capably tackles the global water crisis—including hydrofracking—and considers plausible solutions to fix it. Featuring Erin Brockovich.
