Thirst

Thirst is an upcoming water documentary being shown on February 18 at Phillips Exeter Academy as part of their PEA Sustainability Series.

WHENFriday, February 18, 2011 @ 6:30 p.m.

WHEREPhillips Exeter Academy, Tan Lane, Exeter, NH in the Phelps Academy Center, Forum 3rd floor

Free and open to the public; street parking is available.
Is water part of a shared "commons", a human right for all people? Or is it a commodity to be bought, sold, and traded in a global marketplace? THIRST tells the stories of communities in Bolivia, India, and the United States that are asking these fundamental questions, as water becomes the most valuable global resource of the 21st Century.
A character-driven documentary with no narration, THIRST reveals how the debate over water rights between communities and corporations can serve as a catalyst for explosive and steadfast resistance to globalization.
Following the showing, Denise Hart, New England Director of Food & Water Watch will be speaking on these water issues.
