Waterlife launched at HotDocs this year, winning the special jury prize for feature documentary. It’s now playing theatrically throughout Canada – please help support this important film while it’s in cinemas. From Mark Achbar:
“WATERLIFE follows the epic cascade of the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. From the icy cliffs of Lake Superior to the ornate fountains of Chicago to the sewers of Windsor, this feature-length documentary tells the story of the last great reserve of fresh water on Earth. Filled with fascinating characters and stunning imagery, WATERLIFE is directed by Kevin McMahon and narrated by Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip. Under assault by toxins, sewage, invasive species and dropping water levels, many scientists believe the Great Lakes are on the verge of ecological collapse. We are teaming up with grassroots environmental groups who care about our water to help get the word out about the film. To find out more about the issues, click here.
