This month: Flow, Thursday, June 18 at 7:30.

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 - and asks the question, "Can anyone really own water?"

Salina builds a case against the growing privatization of the world's dwindling fresh water supply. Beyond identifying the problem, Flow also offers 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.
