On Taketomi Island, Japan, people don’t take water for granted. In the past, water was incredibly scarce and the older people still tell stories and sing songs of harder times. “Water was our life itself. We never wasted it. It was used to the full. When we used water to wash some vegetable, then we kept this water for another thing. Water was a treasure for us,” says one of the village elders.

The documentary film ‘I’m Water Action!’ will be launched on March 22. A short trailer is available here:
