Hope and change in Bolivia in an era of water privatization. Filmed entirely in Bolivia, the film 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 water.

50 Minutes (Ireland); Spanish with English subtitles; A Documentary Film by Muireann de Barra & Aisling Crudden

Films Across Borders showcases critically acclaimed films, documentaries, shorts and virtual reality experiences from around the world. Co-presented by American University in partnership with embassy cultural organizations, arts institutions -- including the DC LaborFest -- and environmental groups, the series focuses on a distinctive timely and compelling theme each year.
Now in its fifth year, the 2019 series -- Films Across Borders: Stories of Water -- brings together diverse cinematic stories about our relationship with water: how we are drawn to it, how we use it, how this precious resource shapes human society and our daily lives. Previous film series focused on ‘Stories of Women’ (2018) and ‘Stories of Migration’ (2017)
Come for the films and the enjoyment of engaging with filmmakers and topical speakers in lively post-screening discussions. Open to the public in venues around the city in October and November.
