"There are untold profits to be made from controlling the simplest and most vital ingredient of our survival: water. The only question, from a profit standpoint, is why it has taken this long. What Kaufman and Snitow find is that the 'water rush' is likely to turn into one of the most volatile and potentially galvanizing issues of the 21st century." The documentary will have its national P.O.V. broadcast premiere on PBS stations on Tuesday, July 13th at 10 p.m
