All of us in the developed world take clean water for granted. We run it needlessly while we brush our teeth or wash our dishes; we luxuriate in deep baths and long showers. But the reality is that for millions around the world, even one drop of pure water is precious.
“Behind the Water” is a new film that weaves together the stirring true stories of individuals who have overcome devastating obstacles to find clean water. Set to a haunting soundtrack by Brent Kutzle, of the Grammy Award winning band One Republic, the film embraces the power of family, commitment and how a community can be radically divided because of survival.
Water Work’s Fraser Kershaw teamed up with National Geographic’s Doug Clevenger to take a camera crew through highly restricted areas to find the deeply personal tales of stories from the locals of Latin American slums. The filmmakers explore the power of heroic water related stories, which encourages viewers to find their own unique path to helping the world find a solution.
“Our goal is to inspire everyone on the planet who loves fellow humans to embody and empower another spirit, engage with the world, and make a difference,” says Kershaw. This small clip was enough inspiration for us to share it with you, and we hope you’ll spread the word too.
