The Glass is Still Half Full
As part of our monthly screening series, Burque Bioneers is proud to present Last Call at the Oasis on August 28th at 7pm at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in the Bank of America Theater at 1701 4th Street SW.
Developed, financed and executive produced by Participant Media, the company responsible for AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, FOOD, INC. and WAITING FOR “SUPERMAN”, 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.
“If there was a price placed on clean water we might start treating it like it has value. Maybe when it’s gone we’ll realize we can’t drink oil or money.” —Dave Matthews
Less than 1 percent of the world’s water is fresh and potable—and no more will ever be available. Thanks to pollution, global warming, and population growth, water access is poised to become today’s most explosive global issue. No resource on earth is more precious—or more endangered—than water. Last Call at the Oasis is a powerful tool for learning about the water challenges we face as well as the remarkable solutions available to us—if we have the will to use them.
In conjunction with Liquid Currency 2012: Spend it like Water, an art exhibit & dialogue about our most essential resource running from June 28th to August 24th at the City of Albuquerque’s South Broadway Cultural Center, Burque Bioneers are proud to present:
