Thirst for Power Preview Screening
December 3, 2018 @ 6:30 pm
Water and energy are the two fundamental components of a society, and they are interconnected. Thirst for Power, shot on location across France, California, and Texas, explores the history of civilization’s quest to procure abundant water and energy — from ancient Roman aqueducts in Europe to modern America’s vast hydroelectric infrastructure. The film explores our dependence on water for energy as well as vulnerabilities in our current systems. Changing the way we think about water and energy can secure the long-term sustainability of both precious resources.
Hosted by Marilu Hastings of The Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation, this special screening will also include a panel discussion moderated by Evan Smith, CEO and co-founder of The Texas Tribune. Check out the event website for more information.
