How private corporations make money with water
A coproduction of KERNFILM,  Achille du Genestouxand La Mare aux canards , in collaboration with Aquattac and ZDF/Arte by Leslie Franke and Herdolor Lorenz 2011, 90 minutes
10 to 15 years ago a wave of privatisations of our water supply started, which has been propagating since all over the world. Meanwhile the enduring consequences - such as slums cut off from the access to clean water and dry faucets in London - are sufficiently known. for Nowadays no one talks about privatisation, but about business concepts such as private public partnership. The only thing that counts here is the capital which ‘creates' the infrastructure through loans. However, in these days of limited public finances, budgeting competence is at least as important as the technical mastering of water management. Many communities however are risking to be cheated by superior corporate groups. The movie „Water Makes Money" is a documentary about the biggest water companies and the resistance against them. It shows how ‘money printing machines' of the companies work, especially in France and in German cities like Berlin or Braunschweig. However, „Water Makes Money" also encourages and shows the lessons the affected municipalities have learned from the dominance of Veolia & Co.: Water in public hands is necessary and possible!
