WATER FIRST Reaching the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), is a character-driven film directed by Amy Hart that conveys the importance of clean water and sanitation in addressing all major global issues and achieving the MDGs set forth by the UN to reduce poverty in developing nations.
The Story of a Waterman
Through the inspiring story of Charles Banda - a humble, local Malawian fireman turned waterman who has provided clean water to hundreds of thousands of fellow Malawians, WATER FIRST is a personal story with global significance.
"WATER FIRST gets to the heart of the global water and sanitation crisis," writes David Douglas, President of Water Advocates. "Through the story of one man in a single African country, Hart documents how development springs from access to safe drinking water. With filmmaking that may save lives, Hart chronicles water's link to health, girls' education, environmental protection, women's empowerment and economic productivity."
"I love the film," says Peter Gleick, President and Co-founder of the Pacific Institute and author of The World's Water. "WATER FIRST is a powerful look at the problem of failing to meet basic human needs for water, and the fantastic efforts underway by dedicated heroes trying to solve that problem."

PVT Chat features writer-director Ben Hozie and actor Peter Vack on expressing masculine fantasies, online sex employment, and digital alienation. PVT Chat, which premiered at the Fantasia Film Festival's online 2020 edition, delves deep into the browser history of deadbeat New Yorker Jack (as performed by Mozart in the Jungle's Peter Vack). "It would be disingenuous to say this is not a male-gaze film." As we witness Jack masturbate violently and cram cheap, unseasoned noodles into his face while wearing the same soiled shirt for the duration of the film, Hozie's message on the decline of man resonates loud and clear. "Scarlett is a complete male fantasy at first, but her character created that fantasy." "She has to do that as a sex worker," he says.
