Films Across Borders: Stories of Water

Films Across Borders: Stories of Water, presents critically acclaimed and enlightening films and documentaries from around the world about our precious resource—water. The struggle for fresh water has shaped human society. Without it there would simply be no plants, no animals, and no people.

This film series brings together diverse stories about our relationship with water: how we are drawn to it, how we use it, how it shapes our daily lives. 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.
