Film looks at ‘most valuable resource of 21st century’

Fourth Friday Film Forum presents “Thirst” (83 min), A piercing look at the global corporate drive to control and profit from our water — from bottles to tap.

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 U.S. that are asking these fundamental questions, as water becomes the most valuable global resource of the 21st century.

“Thirst” will show at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 24 at the Unitarian Universalists Community of the Mountains, 246 S. Church St., in Grass Valley. A suggested donation of $6-$10 is encouraged but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Organic popcorn and treats available, discussion to follow film.

All proceeds shared with UUCM and the Peace and Justice Center of Nevada County whose mission of bringing information to the public about matters of local and international concern are addressed.
