LAST CALL AT THE OASIS (USA, 2011, 105 min.)

Washington, D.C. Premiere Firmly establishing the urgency of the global water crisis as the central issue facing our world this century, this Participant Media documentary illuminates the vital role water plays in our lives, exposes the defects in the current system and shows communities already struggling with its ill-effects. Featuring activist Erin Brockovich, respected water experts including Peter Gleick, Jay Famiglietti and Robert Glennon and social entrepreneurs championing revolutionary solutions, the film posits that we can manage this problem if we are willing to act now. There’s no escaping the water crisis, but shifting the behavior of individuals, governments and corporations can help. Directed by Jessica Yu. Produced by Elise Pearlstein. Executive Producers: Jeff Skoll, Diane Weyermann, Carol Baum and David Helpern.

Introduced by Flo Stone, President and Founder, Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital.
