Summary
"Water is Wet is an astonishing film experiment that visually evokes water to connect children to their feelings, awaken their imaginations and spark their creativity. It was the first of four short films directed by documentary pioneer Gordon Weisenborn...Shot all around Chicago and using a mixture of folk songs, classroom activities, and staged vignettes, these films by Gordon Weisenborn capture a spirit of optimism that strives for a world where all children have equal opportunity. To help children see and experience new things in their immediate surrounding, the four films in the series were designed to stimulate imagination, curiosity, and active play"--Container
