I recently attended the Water Research Symposium at Oregon State University. The event featured a lot of great presentations and also included a screening of the film Who Owns Water. The full film can be purchased from Vimeo here.
In the documentary Who Owns Water, David and Michael Hanson set off on a month long canoe trip through the entire Apalachicola, Chattahoochee, and Flint (ACF) river basin located in the southeastern United States. David, who was born and raised in the Atlanta area, is a photographer and film producer that wanted to raise awareness about the water issues that are currently facing the ACF river basin.
