Mexico City is the largest metropolitan area in the western hemisphere. It was not built not near water but in the middle of a lake. To supply it with fresh water is such a task that it makes it compulsory to bring it from other states. Once sewage water leaves the city, it ends up in agriculture. This film is an environmental case study of the Valley of Mexico as it struggles to save itself while its population grows.


  • Variety
    A rallying cry for government and collective action, “H2Omx” is a good-looking, well-researched and smartly assembled documentary that makes a persuasive case that the time is nigh to remedy the status of water management in the Valley of Mexico.
