Thourough, and plodding, survey of the world's most valuable resource - fresh water.
4 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary travels to China, Greenland, India, Spain, Netherlands, Tibet, Norway, and the Nile river basin looking at how fresh water resources are used and often misused. "All civilizations have been shaped by the struggle to control water, ...because no one - absolutely no one - can escape the power of water." Hydro engineers often make plans with little regard for the plans being made in neighboring countries for that same resource. Showing dams, muddy wells, glorious waterfalls, and desalination plants this documentary had excellent cinematography showing the problems and hopeful solutions. Claiming that 1 in 4 persons on this planet live a place where water is scarce; this film asks the question "...will power over water bring with it political power?" Based on the work of Prof. Terje Tvedt, who is also the presenter.
