You might be drinking poison. Weight of Water is a documentary about our most precious resource and the impending chaos
There is something in the water....
The earth’s surface is covered by 70% of water, without it life as we know it would not exist. Water is essential to everything in our ecosystem, especially us humans. Hundreds of documentaries have been done about water pollution showing statistics and information. Can you remember one documentary about water pollutants? Most likely not. What filmmakers fail to do is show the faces of the true victims. Us, humans - ironically we are making the problems in the environment and we have no choice but to swallow these issues. This is not another statistics documentary. We are showing the human side to the problems and the path it will lead us.
Less than 3% of that water is drinkable. That number is dropping fast. What would you do if you knew what you were drinking?
About the ProjectThe approach to explore this subject was chosen because it affects everyone. This is not a new issue; the problem has been here for a long time. It has faded from view; the public does not see fish dyeing, when more than half of the lakes and rivers are in remote areas. It is expected that the topic of water pollution come to public view only when water pollutants reach a critical level. At that point it will be late and little to nothing could be done. We forget who this is really affecting. The sad part is we drink from these contaminated lakes and rivers unaware how much harm we are doing to ourselves. We will travel the country searching for stories of people being affected by contaminated unsafe water. Believe me there are thousands across the country...
The expected release is late 2012
