Making a film about water? Sign me up. When I heard that Xylem and Manchester City wanted to create a film about water challenges, I had to get involved. After all, I spent the better part of four years developing and directing a disaster movie called The Wave. I’m also from Norway, where water literally falls off the mountains. I thought I knew everything I needed to know about water, and then some. But then I learned more about the project and truly began to understand the incredible water challenges facing the world, the heroic work being done by utilities and the entire water sector, and why we simply must get the word out to the public about water.
