How much water does a person need?
Who ensures that this need is met?
Is there enough water for everybody?
With growing urbanisation across India, many towns and cities are crying for more water. Is the shortage due to a lack of resources or due to poor management? Located in Bangalore, the film Water and a City, traces the journey of water into and out of urban homes. Along this journey, it looks at access to water for the poor, the politics of water pricing, urban India’s continuous exploitation of natural resources, and explores possible alternatives for a sustainable water future.

  1. Beautiful documentary. I liked its approach: it can be quantitative , but at teh same time it si able to give you the connection to what people think. Well done Swati!

    • Thanks Francesco! Its a pity, I wasn’t able to interact with the audience after the screening. perhaps another time?
