About The Film:
Population growth, pollution, and scarcity are turning water into "blue gold," the oil of the 21st century. "Thirst," an hour-long, character-driven documentary without narration reveals how water is the catalyst for explosive community resistance to corporate globalization. Shot in Bolivia, India, Japan and the United States, the film is a piercing look at the conflict between public stewardship and private profit. As it profiles privatization projects, "Thirst" asks viewers to consider a fundamental question: Is water a basic human right, belonging to everyone, or is it a commodity, subject to the control of corporations interested in buying, selling, and trading it for profit?
