Bottled Life: Nestlé´s Business with Water
Urs Schnell | Doc | 2012 | 90min | Switzerland
The film depicts the scenario of an international business that threatens
free access to a resource essential for life on the
planet. The film shows those
who dominate the world trade
in bottled water and those
who are fighting against the commodification of a natural resource vital to the survival not only of
humans but also of thousands
of species that have had the
Earth as their home and
habitat for thousands of years. With accurate investigative journalism, "Bottled Life ..." sets out
the interests of "predators of water," that exploit this resource in all parts of the planet, endangering the safety of hydric ecosystems, communities, cities and even countries. This is a serious international environmental issue that impacts
the sustainability’s of the human race, the flora and the fauna. Yes
there is water out of the
bottle. It is pure, clean, refreshing and crystal and its sources must remain accessible to all living beings on the planet.
