Original Title: The Way Water Cries
Director: Wang Meng
Theme: Ecology & The Environment
EPISODE 1 To say that the water crisis in China is imminent is inaccurate. The crisis is already here, and the impact of the water crisis is seen in many regions across China. By examining the Dianchi Lake in Southwest China, we learn that certain fish species have disappeared, which was probably caused by lake pollution.
It has been discovered that the origins of some traditional water sources, such as Changjiang River has changed. There is draught in north and west China, whereas in 2007 there were flood disasters in south China. The high density of people living in urban centers coupled with the rapid industrialization of China contribute to this problem.
Throughout the history of China, the distribution of population is decided by the distribution of water source, which has lead to the underdevelopment of western China. There is an urgent need for Public Administrators, Government Leaders and Urban Planners, in cooperation with all the people of China, to work together in solving the water crisis.
