"This is the most amazing website I have ever seen and interacted with. It is beautiful, creative, with beautiful music telling the most harrowing of facts. There is a movie to be aired soon. I hope I get to see it. Living in Michigan I realize how much my life is intertwined with the Great Lakes, but this Canadian made site and movie shows how EVERYONE will be affected. Check it out people! "From Stumbleupoun.com Sept06.09

"So far the best website I've seen on the net (I've been using the internet for roughly 10 years), not just for presentation, but content too. The emotional music gets the message across very strongly. Very important subject. Excellent."

"This is the most creative, inspiring and thought-provoking site I have seen."
"Water, the experts say, covers about 2/3 of the Earth's surface. Drinking water, of course, occupies far less than that and a good portion of this is divided between town supplied and bottled drinking water."

   WATERLIFE - The documentary follows the epic cascade of the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. From the icy cliffs of Lake Superior to the ornate fountains of Chicago to the sewers of Windsor, this feature-length documentary tells the story of the last great supply (20 per cent) of fresh water on Earth.The source of drinking water, fish and emotional sustenance for 35 million people, the Great Lakes are under assault by toxins, sewage, invasive species, dropping water levels and profound apathy.
 
  
   Some scientists believe the lakes are on the verge of ecological collapse. Filled with fascinating characters and stunning imagery, WATERLIFE is an epic cinematic poem about the beauty of water and the dangers of taking it for granted. The film is directed by Kevin McMahon and narrated by The Tragically Hip’s Gord Downie. It features music by Sam Roberts, Sufjan Stevens, Sigur Ros, Robbie Robertson and Brian Eno.

"Waterlife is a dire warning in the vessel of a tone poem, simultaneously a lyrical paean to the lakes' lingering beauty and a relentless documentation of their rising toxicity."
~Rick Groen, The Globe and Mail
 
 

"As spoken by scientists, fishermen, residents and narrator Gord Downie, the film's revelations are plenty disturbing. Yet with its gorgeous imagery and ethereal soundtrack, Waterlife also emphasizes the beauty of what's at risk."
~Jason Anderson, The Toronto Star

"One of the most stunning films about the environmental crisis I’ve ever seen...not only does it contain important information presented in a way that we haven’t seen before but it is a beautiful cinematic experience."
~Agnes Varnum, doc it out

"There are a lot of environmentally themed documentaries floating around out there, but rarely do they present themselves on such a cinematically engaging level as Kevin McMahon’s Waterlife. McMahon manages to balance his information with engaging storytelling... Overall, Waterlife was probably the best experience I had at this years Hot Docs festival."
~Jay Cheel, The Documentary Blog

"Amongst all of the beautifully shot and entirely absorbing sequences of water life there is an overwhelming sense of impending mortality, with the film acting as an elegy to not only the lakes but also life as we know it."
~Robert Bell, Exclaim
