SunCommon Presents: Tapped

July 24 @ 8:15 am - 11:00 pm

Let’s face it: we humans are not very good at managing waste. Plastic exemplifies the problem. We’re recognizing #PlasticFreeJuly by bringing you the facts about single-use plastic, and igniting conversations around living more sustainably. Upstate Films and SunCommon are presenting a FREE screening of Tapped, Stephanie Soechtig’s debut feature examining the financial and ecological impact of the bottled water industry, including the toxic byproducts of manufacturing plastic water bottles. Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right, or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any other article of commerce?

From the producers of Who Killed the Electric Car and I.O.U.S.A., this timely documentary is a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity: our water. From the plastic production to the ocean in which so many of these bottles end up, this inspiring documentary trails the path of the bottled water industry and the communities which were the unwitting chips on the table. A powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry, this revelatory film features those caught at the intersection of big business and the public’s right to water.
