AGAINST THE FLOW
Director(s): Vassili SILOVIC – Writer(s): Vassili SILOVIC Contact Print page
The film points to concrete examples and starts off with a paradox: the inhabitants of a village in Mali live on 6 litres of water per day and person, while at the same moment in Barcelona, the authorities fear a water shortage – each citizen uses on average 120 litres per day!
This example clearly demonstrates that the definition of need and shortage is a question of proportion.
The film investigates in Spain, Mali and Mexico and does not point towards any “culprits”, but reminds us that water shortage is rarely only a question of resource. What if it were, above all, a question of democracy?
