Title 17 U.S.C. Section 107

A Political Remix Video by Desiree D’Alessandro

As part of the Political Remix Video genre that postures itself as Fair-Use in accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. Section 107, Desiree D’Alessandro addresses the looming environmental crisis of worldwide water shortage that is destroying the earth and leaving the poor without access to a common life-sustaining resource. With clips appropriated from scientists, politicians, news broadcastings, and popular media, D’Alessandro explores and aims to expose how corporations are maneuvering to convert this critical world resource into a profitable commodity – namely in the form of golf courses. Currently, there are over 32,000 golf courses worldwide, over 17,000 in the US, and approximately 1,137 public and private golf courses are located in California as amongst the leading golf course-congested states in the US. Reports from UN estimate that golf courses consume a staggering 2.5 billion gallons/9.5 billion liters of water DAILY. This remix video aims to facilitate contemplation and recognition of this global crisis via the viral media platform of YouTube.
