The Event Program
- Movie presentation of Last Call at the Oasis
Developed, financed and executive produced by Participant Media, the company responsible for AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, FOOD, INC. AND WAITING FOR “SUPERMAN”, LAST CALL AT THE OASIS presents a powerful argument for why the global water crisis will be the central issue facing our world this century. Illuminating the vital role water plays in our lives, exposing the defects in the current system and depicting communities already struggling with its ill-effects, the film features activist Erin Brockovich and such distinguished experts as Peter Gleick, Alex Prud’homme, Jay Famiglietti and Robert Glennon.
The Book in Common, Unquenchable by Robert Glennon, discusses water use and shortages in the U.S., and this film will deepen your appreciation of these issues and highlight ways we in Northern California can become more involved in this critical issue.
