Pumped Dry (Canadian Premiere) + When the Well Runs Dry (Canadian Premiere)
Pumped Dry: The Global Crisis of Vanishing Ground Water: (US, 2015) (63.5 minutes)

In places around the world, supplies of groundwater are rapidly vanishing. As aquifers decline and wells begin to go dry, people are being forced to confront a growing crisis.

This documentary travels to Morocco, India, Peru, California and Kansas to tell stories of some of those most affected by this crisis and sounds the alarm as groundwater decline threatens food and water security in key agricultural regions around the world.


When the Well Runs Dry: (US, 2015) (31 minutes)

This 31 minute documentary film tenderly portrays the vital connection that rural Kansans have with water, our most precious resource. Ranchers, farmers, and residents of small Kansas towns tell us their heartfelt, personal stories about water, including the ongoing threats they face to the availability of the water they depend on.

A Day in the Water Life: (CAN, 2011) (4.5 minutes)

How much water do we use? Not that much directly for drinking, washing, and cooking. But the food we eat requires a fair bit, as do our clothes and lots of things we use every day. This is known as hidden or Virtual Water.

To explore the concept of Virtual Water we follow Dave, a regular guy working in a typical office for one day, seeing how much water he uses directly compared to how much water goes into all sorts of products he uses and consumes every day. The surprising quantities and comparisons are communicated through a series quirky and engaging motion graphics that make learning fun.
