Is water a commercial good like running shoes or Coca-Cola? Or, is water a human right like air?

Water On The Table is a character-driven, social-issue documentary by Liz Marshall that explores Canada’s relationship to its freshwater, arguably its most precious natural resource.

Water On The Table features Maude Barlow, who is considered an “international water-warrior” for her crusade to have water declared a human right. ”Water must be declared a public trust and a human right that belongs to the people, the ecosystem and the future, and preserved for all time and practice in law. Clean water must be delivered as a public service, not a profitable commodity.”

Nominated for a 2010 Donald Brittain Award for best social political documentary, Gemini Awards.
Winner of the 2010 Best Canadian Feature Film at the International Planet in Focus Environmental Film Festival.

Produced in association with TVO, the commissioning editor was Jane Jankovic. Produced in association with Knowledge, and with the participation of the Canada Media Fund, Ontario Arts Council, Canwest-Hot Docs Completion Fund, and Rogers Documentary Fund.

Distributed in Canada by Kinosmith. Foreign Distribution by Bullfrog Films.
