WATER BUCKS

A Series of short documentaries 

about water privatization

Water Bucks features cases where financial and political complicity have resulted in privatization of water (bottling), water management (private companies) , and waste water management.  Privatization frequently results in reduced access to clean water and degrades civil life.  These documentaries shows the harm caused by the willful and continuing process of abnegation of public management in the face of strong marketing powers of global water utilities.
