Video on the Pan Asian Water Colloquium held in Chennai, September 25 to 30th 2008. A group of Water Activists, Operators, Unionists, Academics, Researchers and Policy makers from 18 countries across the globe assembled in Chennai to participate in the Pan Asian Colloquium on "Rights to Water: Challenges and Solutions". This film is a documentation of the journey of the delegates as they explore alternatives and experience the "The Democratization Experiment" of the Tamilnadu Water supply and Drainage baord. (TWAD).
Part One: The adverse effects of the privatization of water in various parts of the world becomes apparent as the delegates share their experiences. Given that 'Water' is part of the Global commons and that privatization needs to be resisted; how does one proceed forward. What are the alternatives? What is this TWAD experiment. How and where does the journey begin?
