From the producers of  “Who Killed the Electric Car?”

Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right, or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any other article of commerce?

From the plastic production to the ocean in which so many of these bottles end upm, this inspiring documentary trails the path of the bottled water industry and the communities which were the unwitting chips on the table. A powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry, this revelatory film features those caught at the intersection of big business and the public’s right to water.

Time: 7 – 9 PM, doors open at 6:30 PM
Location: 1st Unitarian Church, Eliot Chapel, SW 12th and Salmon
