Updated: Green Film Festival to present "Thirst" June 16

HOUGHTON -- Thirst is the last film scheduled in the Green Film Festival. It will air at 7 p.m., Thursday, June 16, in the Atrium and G0002 of the Forestry Building. A discussion led by Michigan Tech environmental policy graduate student Ellis Adams will follow the showing.

The film documents community resistance in Bolivia, India and the US to efforts by powerful corporations to turn the world's water supplies into commercial commodities.

Viewing is free, but a donation of $3 is suggested. Coffee, tea, and dessert will be served.

"The Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative would like to thank you for your support of the Green Film series this past year," said Joan Chadde of the Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative. "A total of 440 people have attended the past five films. Donations have come within $100 of the cost of the film festival (not including donated refreshments)."

Please come and share your ideas for films and speakers for next school year!

The Green Film Festival is sponsored by Michigan Tech's Center for Water and Society, the Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative, the Keweenaw Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and the Keweenaw Land Trust.
