Water Brothers Episodes: From the North Pole (the Canadian Arctic, Iceland and Greenland) to the African Continent (Tanzania, Kenya and Mount Kilimanjaro) the Water Brothers travel across the globe to explore and share with us the most critical water stories of our time.
*The Water Brothers will be in attendance to introduce the films and for a post-screening Q&A.
The Big Thaw  (24:37 minutes), CAN
The North Pole is melting faster than ever. The Northwest Passage will soon be an international shipping lane. The polar bear may soon be extinct. Change in the Arctic is happening at warp speed. With rising sea levels, the fate of the world depends on slowing the Big Thaw. The Water Brothers visit the Arctic to get the facts and find answers.
No Woman, No Water  (25 minutes), CAN
Hundreds of millions of people live without access to clean water and billions live without a toilet, causing countless lives to be lost each day. It is women and girls that are usually given the difficult task of hauling water, taking many hours each day often in the hot sun and sacrificing much for their families and communities.
The Brothers travel to Africa to the most water scarce regions of Tanzania and Kenya, to see firsthand how simple water projects can make huge changes towards economic advancement and how it is women who hold the key to improving clean water and sanitation access in their local communities.
And the Brothers make an adventurous climb up Africa's highest peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro, to help raise money for clean water and sanitation projects across East Africa.
