Movie – “F.L.O.W. (For Love Of Water)”

Irena Salina’s cautionary documentary is determined to stir things up. Water, the quintessence of life, sustains every creature on Earth. Flow: For the Love of Water is an inspired, yet disturbingly provocative, wake-up call. The future of our planet is drying up rapidly. Focusing on pollution, human rights, politics, and corruption, filmmaker Salina constructs an exceptionally articulate profile of the precarious relationship uniting human beings and water. While each community’s challenges are unique, the message is universal — the time to turn the tide is now.

“Galvanizing… An informed and heartfelt examination of the tug of war between public health and private interests.” -Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

“The inconvenient truth at the center of ‘Flow: For Love of Water’ is that while the oil crisis is intensely debated and documented, disasters involving an even more essential fluid go perilously unnoticed.” -Fernando F. Croce, Slant Magazine

Timothy, prone to escaping his dismal high school reality through dazzling musical daydreams, gets cast by his eccentric teacher as Puck in his school’s production of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” He stumbles upon a recipe for a love potion hidden within the script, and uses it to turn almost everyone in his narrow-minded town gay. With vibrant imagery, a first-rate ensemble cast and innovative music rivaling the best of pop/ rock and contemporary Broadway, “Were The World Mine” attempts to push modern gay cinema and musical film beyond expectation.

“Endearing…an indie alternative to Disney’s ‘High School Musical’.” -Stephen Holden, New York Times

“A rousing, warm-hearted spectacle.” -Stephen Farber, The Hollywood Reporter
