"Water and Power: A California Heist" Screening and Discussion

“Water & Power: A California Heist”
Film Screening and Discussion | Wednesday, April 11, 2018 @ 6:30 pm

Water & Power investigates California’s convoluted water system, where water barons found ways to structure a state-engineered system to their advantage. The 2017 documentary places California’s recent water crisis in historical context and shows how small farmers and everyday citizens are facing the drought and a new, debilitating crisis. The film raises broad and significant questions about who profits from and controls access to our natural resources.

This is the third and final screening for the Byrd Center and Lifelong Learning’s Spring 2018 Film Series. The doors will open at 6:00 pm and refreshments will be provided after the post-film discussion. This event is free and open to the campus and community.
