Reviews and Festivals
"An important movie as it provides an easy-to-access narrative for a general public on otherwise hard-to-access topics. Recommended for a general but curious audience, as well as scholars on topics of water, energy, power, and climate change that seek ways to talk about these topics accessibly. The movie resonates with what has been told by various anthropologists....a thought-provoking film."

"Highly Recommended. Effectively intertwines anecdotes and comments with more in-depth explanations by scientists. Thus, we gain vital insights into the interdependence of water and energy and what this means for us, our society, and our survival. This documentary will heighten awareness of the impact of modern lifestyles on water quality and essential ecosystems. The simple act of turning on a light switch will have a new meaning."

"Will leave you in awe of human ingenuity and our mastery over water...Shows us the true power of water to bring life to civilization or send them into despair in its absence. From Roman aqueducts in the south of France to modern energy and water distribution systems, you will gasp at the mechanical behemoths that give us the luxury of household tap water."
