Emmy award-winning director Marina Zenovich’s (“Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired) Water & Power: A California Heist takes a look at the incredible drought that has gripped the valley’s of California for years.

The National Geographic documentary film, executive produced by Academy Award winner Alex Gibney and produced by Jigsaw Productions, unfolds like a real-life version of the 1974 film noir “Chinatown,” uncovering the ruthless exploits of California’s notorious water barons, who profit off the state’s resources while everyday citizens endure a debilitating water crisis. What does this mean for the future of not only California, but of our world as a whole? With water becoming less and less accessible, it is simultaneously becoming more valuable.

Discussion follows screening: Marina Zenovich (director) and Adam Keats (film subject and Environmental Attorney, Center for Food Safety); moderator Jamie Shreeve (Deputy Editor in Chief, National Geographic). Reception after.
