“Tapped” showing in Belfast, September 15th

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO WATER SUPPLIES ON OUR PLANET?

WHO IS TAKING WATER SUPPLIES FOR PROFIT?

ARE PLASTIC BOTTLES SAFE?

“Tapped” is a new film about public Water Supplies and resources that are now being tapped and used for private profit. “Tapped” looks at how a few corporations– specially Coca Cola, Nestle, Pepsi Cola–are benefiting from an unregulated industry– bottled water. These companies are depleting huge aquifers or taking large quantities of water from public water supplies. It discusses how millions of potentially dangerous empty water bottles are filling landfills, recycling centers and roadsides or oceans. The film also addresses an ultimate question: Is water a public resource and right From the producers of “Who Killed the Electric Car” and I.O.U.S.A., the award-winning documentary Tapped is a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity: our water.
