Quotes

Jim Olson - Environmental Attorney: What we did was, we said let's go back in time and look at who owned the water 1000 years ago in Rome
[sic]
Jim Olson - Environmental Attorney: and how has the civil law in Europe and other cultures handled this question of water ownership and use. And what we found was that water has always had a public aspect to it. Water has always been considered not owned by anybody. Today we think, well, isn't that profound. It's not profound at all.

Water Wars
12 February 2008 | by umailehteshamSee all my reviews

Amazing documentary on the subject of water privatization around the globe screened at the 10th Mumbai International film festival India-2008

Hat's off to the Director Irena Salena for her brave attempt which took her five years to complete this wonderful film. I do believe this is a film that should be shone, in schools across the the entire globe.

This film widens the vision you have of the conflict, by letting us see it through the eyes of the poor, innocent and affected people of the world.

I also want to congratulate the director for making such an impact on award ceremonies world wide & winning the International jury award in the International Competition section at the 10th m.i.f.f India 2008.

Keep it up Irena & best of luck for your future projects.
