Movie poster for How to Carry WaterStreaming Video

Title: How to Carry Water
Year: 2023
Director: Sasha Wortzel 

"This punk rock fairytale doubles as a portrait of Shoog McDaniel -- a fat, queer, and disabled photographer working in and around northern Florida's vast network of freshwater springs, the state's source of precious drinking water. For over a decade, Shoog's photographs have transformed the way fat people view themselves and how a fat phobic society views fat bodies. Bringing Shoog's photography to life, the film immerses audiences in a world of fat beauty and liberation, one in which marginalized bodies -- including bodies of water -- are sacred.'"-- From Multitude Films website.
