Water On The Table is a character-driven, social-issue documentary that explores Canada's relationship to its freshwater, arguably its most precious natural resource. The film asks the question: is water a commercial good like running shoes or Coca-Cola? Or, is water a human right like air?

Water On The Table features Maude Barlow, who is considered an "international water-warrior" for her crusade to have water declared a human right.  "Water must be declared a public trust and a human right that belongs to the people, the ecosystem and the future, and preserved for all time and practice in law. Clean water must be delivered as a public service, not a profitable commodity."

This film co-sponsored by Beyond the Classroom Living & Learning Program and Thirsty Turtles UMD
