The Bottom Line: Privatizing the world

The documentary examines the manipulated reality surrounding various goods, defined by the director Carole Poliquin as “commons” in the sense that certain goods do not belong to governments, political entities or individuals but to humankind in its entirety. Does a river belong to us just because it flows through our territory? Using these and other arguments she denounces the privatisation and commodification of certain goods and services. She exhibits water as part of a common good belonging not just to humankind but to a fragile ecosystem.
