Tapped is an 81-minute American documentary from the same folks who brought you Who Killed the Electric Car and I.O.U.S.A. Directed and produced by Stephanie Soechtig, the film gives a behind-the-scenes peek into the bottled water industry and its effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil.
