This film is being screened in recognition of World Water Day March 22.

A documentary-style film, “Shadow of Drought: Southern California’s Looming Water Crisis” explores the recovery that California is facing after recuperating from the worst drought that the state has ever seen. Climate change contributes to a variety of consequences which threaten the imported water supply of Southern California.

The title of the film alludes to the shadow that the drought holds over the region as the documentary analyzes what may occur if there is inaction in this crucial time.

Sponsors include the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, Fresnans Against Fracking, Tehipite Chapter of Sierra Club and Friends of the San Joaquin River Gorge. “Shadow of Drought” is 42 minutes long.
