What does it mean to lose our fresh water gems and how can we put a price on them? The Tragedy of the Commons looks at the cost of taking our fresh water sources and exploiting them for profit and poses the questions: What happens to the life and natural beauty of our water ecosystems if we fail in our duty to protect them? What is the real cost of a glass of clean water?
These films are presented by the Water Docs Film Festival in celebration of our 10th Anniversary!

The Fellowship of the Springs

The Fellowship of the Springs

01:49:44

Florida’s artesian springs are a natural wonder of the world. As unique as the geysers of Yellowstone and as mesmerizing as Vernal Falls in Yosemite, these blue jewels surrounding the north Florida landscape are considered a treasure by many who see them. But today, the future of Florida’s springs is uncertain.
With flow levels declining and nitrate pollution on the rise, the springs today bear the scars of a profound struggle. Florida's own government continues to approve permits for large companies that want to pump water from the springs and their springsheds, for nominal permit fees that often cost less than a day pass to Disney World. The Fellowship of the Springs takes viewers behind the scenes of the fight to save Florida's springs, from the halls of the state capitol in Tallahassee to deep caves of Ichetucknee spring.

The Cost of Free Water

It's well known that water is a collective good and a free inexhaustible resource... false! THE COST OF FREE WATER (LA GOUTTE DE TROP) follows the journey of a drop of water through the whole Montreal water system. Overconsumption, waste, inadequate filtration processes... but there is still some hope as citizens take on the challenge of reducing their consumption.
