THE TIMMY BROTHERS: WATER MAKERS is a quick, funny look at Bill and Terry Timmy, Brooklyn-based makers of artisanal drinking water. Carried overland by their own team of burros, the Timmys source water from around the globe to make their signature blends with a promise of an adventure in every $11 liter. They're introducing handcrafted water to the world with an almost pathological attention to craftsmanship and a thirst for helping people become less thirsty. The Timmys represent either the pinnacle or nadir of the artisanal food movement.
