This short film aims to make us reflect upon how we use and consume water, without being aware of it: this is about so-called ‘virtual water’ – the ‘invisible water’ that goes into making products around the world, from food to household goods, clothing or buildings. This short film sensitises us to the water we most often do not see.

“This short film has been a wonderful opportunity to develop our creative skills and explore the ways we can express ourselves through audiovisual content. We were keen to present the value of water conservation, its care and its aesthetic and spiritual dimensions through animation and music. Music is the universal language of humankind and we wanted to capture this in the film.’’ Patricia Carbonell
