PRLog - May 10, 2012 - HIGH RIVER, Alberta -- Armed with a camera and glasses of cold clear water, Zoe Slusar and Bailey Kerluke hit the streets of Calgary to find out what people knew or didn't know about March 22, otherwise know to some as World Water Day. Their discovery is creatively and poignantly portrayed in the short documentary that is now posted on their website. http://www.untitledonline.ca/
Zoe Slusar & Bailey Kerluke
Many great documentaries exist about water and the importance of conservation, but as is shown in this entertaining documentary consisting of interviews, people simply don't know about these films. Jane Seymour narrated a wonderful documentary named "Running Dry" but despite the fact that a Hollywood star is involved, it remains relatively unknown outside the water sector. In previous releases here by http://www.remake4water.org the importance of public awareness has been brought into the limelight. The video included in a release after the UN International Water Forum exemplified the fact that all of the speakers mentioned public awareness to be key in solving the world's water problems.
What's the answer to this question of how to raise public awareness? One of the women interviewed came up with an idea you can see beginning at 5:43. Patti DiVita, who is on a mission of getting her indie film "Did I Say Thousand Island?" remade by Hollywood types, was thrilled to hear her suggestion. It's what DiVita has been saying all along. Get Hollywood involved in a fun way and people will listen.
Sometimes it is all about the messenger.
