In this stirring documentary, director Leana Hosea interrogates the injustice faced by many communities; that is the lack of access to clean and safe water. Following a band of several extraordinary citizens, we join them on their quest to fight for their basic right to clean water, against all odds. From Flint, Michigan, to the Navajo Nation, via Standing Rock, THIRST FOR JUSTICE takes us on a tour of the American water crisis and those standing up against it.
Get the chance to hear from the experts and activists themselves who join us on our panel to discuss the global water crisis and how it takes shape right here in the UK. Or, nearer still, London itself. Joining the conversation will be Director Leana Hosea, Claire Seaward of End Water Poverty, Dr Katie Meehan lecturer at King's College London on Water Policy, and Guardian Environment editor John Vidal.
This Film Club is hosted by End Water Poverty. End Water Poverty is a global civil society coalition, campaigning to end the water and sanitation crisis through working with grassroots and community-level organisations, regional networks and international policy. They stand up against UN figures that show over 1 billion people live without clean drinking water and many countries still don't recognise the right to clean water and sanitation.
