The Park Sustainability Club will host a screening of the documentary, “Flow: For Love of Water" and a reception that honors the photographers participating in the Park Sustainability Photo Exhibit on Wednesday, April 22, 2009 in recognition of Earth Day.

The reception will take place in the Park Lobby at 8:30 p.m. The screening will follow in the Park Auditorium.

The Park Sustainability Exhibit features work from five student photographers: Ronni Zager ’09, Emma Strachman ’09, Kristen Gerringer ’10, Nick Lareau ’09, and Devan Johnson ‘12. Their work will be featured on the Park Lobby Display Screens. The exhibition is sponsored by Park School’s TREES Institute (Teaching and Research in Environmental Ethics and Sustainability).

"Flow: For Love of Water," an award-winning documentary investigation into what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century - The World Water Crisis.

Director Irena Salina builds a case against the growing privatization of the world's dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel.

Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis, at both the global and human scale, and the film introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab, while begging the question "Can anyone really own water?"
