Water is one of the most important issues of the 21st century. The Sun Valley Center for the Arts has dedicated its current multidisciplinary exhibition, "Water," to the study and understanding of the subject of water in modern society.

As part of the exhibition, The Center will have a free screening of the award-winning documentary film "Flow: For the Love of Water" at the Community School Theatre in Sun Valley on Thursday, Oct. 21, at 6 p.m. The film explores water as a commodity and how water may be the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st century.

Filmmaker Irena Salina exposes the growing privatization of the world's dwindling freshwater supply through interviews with scientists and activists, and introduces several government and corporate culprits behind the global water grab.

"Flow" also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions developing new technologies and providing practical solutions to the water crisis.

"Flow" was an official selection at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. It won Best Documentary at the Vail International Film Festival and the International Jury Prize at the Mumbai International Film Festival in 2008. It was also named Best Documentary at the United Nations Association Film Festival.
