Water Alternatives’ ‘Water Films and Documentaries’ stream is an inventory of the wealth of documentaries and films dealing with water issues. The platform is multilingual and aims to provide information on and access to documentaries and films of interest to teachers, students and the public at large, with comments by water specialists. The website also provides links to additional resources, trailers and to the film itself, whenever available on the web. The academic discussion is also complemented with relevant bibliographical references.

All the documentaries reviewed here are longer than 20 minutes (and exclude debates, interviews, discussions). Our website does not host films but provides links to other platforms.
