Milwaukee Film Festival to Screen Water Film

The Milwaukee Film Festival recently announced that they will be screening the film Last Call at the Oasis. The film will be screened at the Oriental Theater on October 9 in conjunction with this year’s Water Summit. The film will coincide perfectly with the summit theme:  Building the Water-Centric City. Last Call at the Oasis was developed, financed and produced by Participant Media, the company that made such films as An Inconvenient Truth, Food, INC. and Waiting for Superman. The film has been shown at SXSW and the Toronto Film Festival.

LAST CALL AT THE OASIS presents a powerful argument for why the global water crisis will be the central issue facing our world this century. Illuminating the vital role water plays in our lives, exposing the defects in the current system and depicting communities already struggling with its ill-effects, the film features activist Erin Brockovich and such distinguished experts as Peter Gleick, Alex Prud’homme, Jay Famiglietti and Robert Glennon.

As part of the Water Summit events, attendees will have the opportunity to see the film at the Oriental Theater with a brief video introduction being developed by our friends at Boelter+Lincoln about the Milwaukee Water Cluster. You won’t want to miss this event!
