A Fish Out of Water
2021, Senior, Film
I knew that water is related to each individual’s life. However, I had never noticed how water can be used to display the relationship between people, as well as the responsibilities in society. I started to explore. At first, I thought water scarcity only existed in economically underdeveloped areas. I found out the water scarcity also exists in the modern city. Though the price of water is cheap now, some people cannot afford to deal with the safety and quality of the drinking water. That is the reason why rich people can ensure the safety of drinking water and poor people cannot. As a result, poor people are influenced by polluted water negatively to a large extent. I began to think about what we can do. I have always believed that justice should be defended by both sides. Rich people also need to realize the existence of the problem and try their best to give a hand. I tried to combine all my research and thoughts into the film, which is not only a hard process, but also a meaningful experience. By making the film, I facilitated more people to know about some facts about water and encouraged them to reflect.
