2004, 62 minutes
Global corporations are rapidly buying up local water supplies. Communities suddenly lose control of their most precious resource. “Thirst”, a character-driven documentary with no narration, reveals how water is the catalyst for explosive community resistance to globalization. A piercing look at the conflict between public stewardship and private profit. Shot in Bolivia, India, Japan and the USA. Spanish, French, and Portuguese subtitles.
