Free Event: Screening of “Running Dry” & “One Water”
I wanted to share this email that I received from MercyCorps. Sounds like an interesting, worthwhile event:
More than one billion people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. Please commemorate World Water Day by joining Mercy Corps, Starbucks, and Ethos for a special film screening of “Running Dry” & “One Water” on March 22. The event is free and open to the public.
March 22, 7:00PM
NW Film Center
1219 SW Park Ave
The “Running Dry” documentary explores the global water crisis and illustrates the reality that a child dies every fifteen seconds due to inadequate access to clean water and sanitation. The film was written, produced and directed by Jim Thebaut, an environmental planner by training and an accomplished producer. Thebaut will attend the event and be available to answer audience member’s questions after the screening. The event will also include the film “One Water”, a non-verbal 20 minute film about the state of potable water in our world.
