The number one watched movie on Netflix this week is “Leave the World Behind”. It has made waves, not just for its gripping narrative, but also for its resonant theme of societal fragility. It acts as a stark reminder of the unpredictability of our world and it does an excellent job of highlighting how unprepared your average person is for unexpected crises and how terrifying and helpless that feeling would be.
The film depicts a sudden, mysterious catastrophe seen through the eyes of two families who are forced together through circumstance. With communication and information via phones and the internet no longer an option and no access to other people and their knowledge or skillsets, as a viewer you can’t help but ask, “what would I do in this situation?”. The vulnerability of the two families is juxtaposed with another character who they eventually turn to for help, one who has been ready for such an event and has his own stores of emergency supplies. In fact, in the earlier part of the film we see this character loading up his truck with cases of store-bought bottled water and other items.
The Reality of Unpredictable Crises
The film exposes a reality that preppers have long understood – the systems we rely on are not as robust as we might like to believe. From natural disasters to grid failures, the scenarios depicted in the movie are not just cinematic fiction; they’re genuine possibilities that could affect any of us.
Why Water is Paramount
In every crisis scenario depicted in the film, one thing becomes abundantly clear: the importance of access to safe drinking water. In the face of infrastructure collapse, having a reliable source of clean water is not just a convenience; it’s a matter of survival. Later in the movie, one of the main characters runs through a list of items that would be helpful, which includes water filters.
