Event Details

Water Rising is an independent film event being put on by the Bay Area Water for People Committee to help raise awareness of on-going global issues in the areas of water and sanitation, and to raise money that will support the efforts of Water For People, a US-based non-profit organization. 
 
Films
Two current documentaries relevant to global water and sanitation issues will be shown:

Water Rising is a documentary about family, community, hope, and change in Bolivia during an era of water privatization. Filmed entirely in Bolivia, the documentary shares intimate portraits of people living in a ramshackle city where, despite an abundance of freshwater, they struggle for the right to access clean, safe and affordable drinking water.

The Water Tower is a short documentary film about a trip up Mount Kenya, made as part of Jake Norton’s Challenge 21 effort. Mount Kenya has historically produced 70% of this Kenya's water supply, but there is fear that this is changing -  it's glaciers are retreating, and some have already vanished. The film follows a team of climbers as they try to reach the summit of this "water tower" to witness its changes - and how they are rippling downstream.

Refreshments
Appetizers and one (1) drink are included with the price of admission. Additional drinks will also be available.
