Creek Week Kickoff!

Special Free Screening of the Award-Winning documentary Flow at the Rosendale Theatre

Rosendale, N.Y.... The Rosendale Theatre will host a special free public screening of the award-winning documentary, FLOW, on Tuesday, September 14, at 7:15 pm, as part of the 2010 Ulster County Creek Week--a week of activities and events taking place around the county to raise awareness about watershed issues. The event is sponsored by the town environmental commissions of Rosendale and Marbletown, the Rondout Creek Watershed Council, and Stand for Land.

FLOW, a critically acclaimed documentary film directed by Irena Salina, investigates what experts have labeled the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century—the World Water Crisis. 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 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?' Beyond identifying the problem, FLOW also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions providing practical solutions to the water crisis and developing new technologies, which are fast becoming blueprints for a successful global and economic turnaround.

The New York Times calls FLOW an "astonishingly wide-ranging film" that is "less depressing than galvanizing, an informed and heartfelt examination of the tug of war between public health and private interests
