Holland to appear at ‘Flow’ showing


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Gill Holland, a Louisville native who co-produced the award-winning documentary “FLOW: For the Love of Water,” will lead a discussion about the film March 24 at the University of Louisville’s Rauch Planetarium.

    The discussion will take place after a 7:30 p.m. showing of the 93-minute movie, which explores the world water crisis. The film and discussion are both free and open to the public.

    “Flow” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008, later winning awards at the Mumbai International Film Festival, Vail International Film Festival and United Nations Association Film Festival. Directed by Irena Salina, the movie builds a case against growing privatization of the world’s dwindling fresh water supply.

    Holland has produced more than 50 feature films and developed the Green Building in Louisville’s downtown NuLu area.

    Group Recycling and Sustainable Solutions, a UofL student group dedicated to sustainability issues, organized the film showing and discussion in cooperation with the university’s Sustainability Council and Center for Environmental Education.

    Free parking for the event is available at Third St. and Brandeis Ave. in UofL’s “blue” lot next to PNC Bank.
