Where On Earth Will We Get Safe Water? The American Documentary Film Festival Tackles This Question Head-on With SlingShot.

Where On Earth Will We Get Safe Water?

The American Documentary Film Festival
Tackles This Question Head-on With SlingShot.

 Having enough safe potable water is certainly one of the biggest challenges facing human populations today.  The new documentary, SlingShot, focuses on inventor Dean Kamen (Segway Human Transporter) and his 15-year quest to solve the world’s safe water crisis.

Kamen is a modern-day hero whose inventions, mostly medical devices, help people in need and ease suffering.  He is also a man who just might have enough passion, will, and innovative thinking to create a solution for the planet’s biggest challenge – having enough safe, potable water for its growing population. 

Half of all human illness is the result of water borne pathogens, and Kamen has invented an energy efficient vapor compression distiller that can turn any unfit source of water into potable, safe water.  This film traces the story of Kamen’s water purification machine from its earliest days through recent trials in five schools in rural Ghana and beyond.
