06 APR 2018: The profound water crisis in Cape Town, South Africa is affecting the rich and poor, tourists and hosts. In this short doc produced by the German political advocacy group Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung, Tadzio Müller demonstrates just what it means to live on 50 liters (13.2 gallons) of water per day.

In a city where the underprivileged already faced insufficient water resources, the middle class, the government, environmentalists, and engineers are all focused on how to get by - and how to prevent this disaster in the future. But, as Müller notes, current trends mean similar shortages could arise in other places around the world.
