Water Rights Documentary "THIRST" at the Clinton Street Theater

Just a heads up about "Thirst" - a challenging new documentary about global water rights.
Here's a synopsis of the film - now playing at the Clinton Street Theater (26th and Clinton)

Canada, 2003,
Alan Snitow and
Deborah Kaufman,
64 minutes


"Beautiful and engaging."
Sierra Club

"A moving and inspiring film."
Global Water Policy Project

Is water part of a shared "commons," a human right for all people? Or is it a commodity to be bought, sold, and traded in a global marketplace? "Thirst" tells the stories of communities in Bolivia, India, and the United States that are asking these fundamental questions.
