The water crisis in Flint, Michigan last year raised awareness of the severe health damage caused by the lack of clean water.

As we have all seen with the recent problems uncovered in Flint, Michigan, it’s easy for most of us to take clean water for granted. Until we can’t easily get it. In many parts of the world, such as Nairobi, it’s a rare commodity. “The Intimate Realities of Water,” a documentary by University of Cincinnati professors, follows the lives of the people in two of Nairobi’'s slums, Kibera —- the largest urban slum in the city and all of Africa -— and Dagoretti.
