WOMEN AND WATER (Spain, 2014, 58 min.)
In rural India, women are tasked with providing water to their families, which also means being held responsible for their physical health but often access to water depends on forces beyond their control. Bottled water companies pump aquifers dry, leaving towns without groundwater, while "untouchables" are only allowed access to contaminated sources. Control of water means controlling people's ability to live, so in ,Women and Water it becomes a dramatic conduit into the intersection of resource issues and social injustice in contemporary India. Directed and produced by Nocem Collado.
