"A stunning ode to the natural beauty and environmental crisis surrounding the last great supply of fresh water on Earth. Five Great Lakes. One Last Chance. Under assault on all fronts by a deadly combination of industrial toxins, sewage, invasive species, climate change, and profound apathy, the Great Lakes are on the verge of irreversible collapse. Toronto filmmaker Kevin McMahon reveals the extraordinary beauty, ecological complexity, and extreme state of distress of our local waters. A must-see for the 35 million people along the Third Coast who drink from the lakes, swim in the lakes and depend on their waters for survival. Narrated by The Tragically Hip's Gord Downie and featuring music by Sam Roberts, Sufjan Stevens, Sigur Ros, Robbie Robertson and Brian Eno. Waterlife is a dire warning in the vessel of a tone poem, simultaneously a lyrical paean to the lakes' lingering beauty and a relentless documentation of their rising toxicity.
