"Tapped" Examines Big Business of Bottled Water


Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right, or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any other article of commerce? Stephanie Soechtig's debut feature film, "Tapped," is an unflinching examination of the big business of bottled water.

Take friends to a free and public screening on Tuesday, March 16th at American University. Mr. Ms. Soechtig has teamed up with American University's Environmental Filmmaking Center and others to bring you this behind-the-scenes look at the bottled water industry and the scheme to privatize and sell back our water. Stick around after the film for an intriguing discussion on issues raised in the film and AU's efforts to decrease bottled water on campus. And don't forget to stop by Food & Water Watch's table for free stickers and to sign the pledge to Take Back the Tap.
