Is access to clean drinking water a basic
human right, or a commodity that should be bought and sold
like any other article of commerce? Stephanie Soechtig's
feature is an unflinching examination of the big business
of bottled water.
From the producers of Who Killed the
Electric Car and I.O.U.S.A., this timely
documentary is a behind-the-scenes look into the
unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to
privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never
to become a commodity: our water.
From the plastic production to the ocean
in which so many of these bottles end up, this inspiring
documentary trails the path of the bottled water industry
and the communities which were the unwitting chips on the
table. A powerful portrait of the lives affected by the
bottled water industry, this revelatory film features
those caught at the intersection of big business and the
public's right to water.
Not only are we in a water crisis in
which 2/3 of the planet will be without drinkable water
in just 11 years, but multinational corporations are
literally pillaging communities around the country for
this precious resource and bottling into the very
bottles, which contribute the plastic soup in the middle
of the Pacific Ocean. Consequently, we decided we wanted
to do to bottled water what Al Gore did for energy
efficient light bulbs ? inspire people to make small
changes and minor sacrifices that make a big impact.

To start the process of change there is no better tool
than curiosity and tapped certainly asks all the right
questions! We need more must-see films like Tapped, in
order to inspire the change and solution that our planet
so desperately craves.
