Arctic ice melt, water use, and subsequent transitions in the surface of the planet drive this series. Water has many colours, depending on the state of fluidity or frozenness. Inspired by the documentary of the same name, by Baichwal & Burtynsky, examining the history and culture of water use on the planet, and the consequences of failed management systems. A must see doc.
