“Something in the water” reveals the web of special interests, diplomatic ties and corporate influence behind the privatization of Greece’s public services.
The film focuses on the story of the water supply of Thessaloniki, where, despite 98.2% of voters choosing to maintain public control, the Troika continues to push for privatization, with French multinational Suez set to buy a significant share.

3.45pm K2 and the Invisible Footmen – 55mins

Filmmaker Lara Lee and team chronicle the lives of both Pakistani porters and Nepalese sherpas. Despite being paid at rates far below those received by international expedition leaders, such porters—whether they provide critical supplies to expedition base camps or take on higher-altitude tasks in support of ascending climbers—do some of the most difficult and dangerous work and these efforts make them worthy of recognition as the true heroes of mountaineering.
