Join us a for a free screening of the POV Documentary "Thirst" directed by Alan Snitow and Deborah Kaufman.

Population growth, pollution, and scarcity are turning water into "blue gold," the oil of the 21st century. Thirst, an hour-long, character-driven documentary without narration reveals how water is the catalyst for explosive community resistance to corporate globalization. Shot in Bolivia, India, Japan and the United States, the film is a piercing look at the conflict between public stewardship and private profit. As it profiles privatization projects, Thirst asks viewers to consider a fundamental question: Is water a basic human right, belonging to everyone, or is it a commodity, subject to the control of corporations interested in buying, selling, and trading it for profit?

This event is a collaboration with POV, the award-winning independent non-fiction film series on PBS.
