Advance Film Screening: Force of Water

Join us for a special screening of Force of Water, a documentary film that follows two communities, one in Ecuador and one in Uganda, as they mobilize to build their own piped water systems.

For 2.2 billion people, clean safe water flowing through a tap is a distant dream. Force of Water explores this reality through the eyes of local community members and regional program staff working together to build community-wide water access. As the story unfolds, they meet challenges big and small. How will organizers confront their neighbors who are not showing up for communal work days? Will budget deficits derail or reshape the projects? And we begin to understand the collaboration needed between local, national, and international stakeholders to create lasting change.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with Libby Hsu, Lecturer and Associate Director of Academics, MIT D-Lab, and Andrea Johnson, Executive Director, Green Empowerment. Light refreshments will be served.
