16-29 October

Ubuntu Water Foundation launches The Ubuntu Water Foundation Film Festival, which runs from 16-29 October and is a celebration of Water in a build up to  Cape Town’s upcoming Green Week and beyond.

UBUNTU WATER FILM FESTIVAL will be screened at Labia Theatre and Cape Town Medi-Spa on Kloof Street from 16-29 October. This festival examines both energetic and spiritual aspects of water simultaneously exploring what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century – The World Water Crisis.

Collectively these movies build 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, while still reminding us that the structure of water begins at home in our hearts and minds.

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?’

This exciting festival offers special movie screenings of several groundbreaking environmental movies, some for the first time in Africa (like Flow)and include:
o    Water: The Great Mystery-   From the makers of “What The Bleep”
o    Flow: For the love of Water    Screened at the UN as part of the 60th Anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights.  “An astonishingly wide-ranging film.  An informed and heartfelt examination of the tug of war between public health and private interests.” – New York Times
o    Blue Gold: World Water Wars :  Billed as the next ‘Inconvenient Truth’

GUEST SPEAKERS
There will be guest speakers including local experts Dr. Chabad who are renowned for  pioneering workshops and seminars presenting evidence of structured water in our lifestyles, and other project pioneers including Caron von Zeil of Reclaim Camissa.
