Filmmaker Amy Hart recently held a swim-a-thon fundraiser for her independent documentary film project on the global water crisis. The fundraiser was held on Saturday, August 20th in Saratoga Springs, New York. Amy and 12 other swimmers swam 3 miles across Saratoga Lake in an effort to raise funds for the film project as well as awareness of the issues. Read press coverage of the event here.
Both the film and the fundraiser seek to focus attention on the reality faced each day by the millions of people in the world who lack access to clean water. While still in its early stages of production, the film aims to put the global water crisis into a context that people can understand and thereby motivate viewers to make water issues a priority.
