Carbon for Water will have its world premiere at this year’s Planet in Focus Environmental Film Festival.
Directed by Evan Abramson and Carmen Elsa Lopez Abramson, the documentary explores how limited access to clean water in Kenya’s Western Province is forcing its population to fell trees in order to boil drinking water. With projected carbon emission cuts at 2 million tons in the first year, an innovative company has financed the distribution and maintenance of 900,000 water filters to communities in the Western Province based entirely on carbon credits.
Carbon for Water screens on Sunday, October 16 at 3 p.m. at the Al Green Theatre, JCC (750 Spadina Ave.,Toronto, ON). Both directors will be in attendance.
