The evening begins with a social hour and optional pot luck supper at 6:00 pm,
followed by the film at 7:30 pm, followed by a discussion at the end of the film.
This important new documentary is about the world water crisis now threatening humanity. It builds a case against the growing privatization of the world's dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel. Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis, at both the global and human scale, and the film introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab, while begging the question: "CAN ANYONE REALLY OWN WATER?" Beyond identifying the problem, the film also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions providing practical solutions to the water crisis and those developing new technologies -- which are fast becoming blueprints for a successful global and economic turnaround.
