      Is water part of a shared "commons," or is it a commodity?

      "Thirst," an award-winning film by filmmakers Alan Snitow and Deborah Kaufman, tells the stories of communities in Japan, Bolivia, India and Stockton, California, that are confronting the challenge of privatization of water as water become the most valuable resource of the 21st century.

      "Thirst" examines the looming freshwater crisis as global corporations and governments move to commodify and cartelize the world's water supplies for power and profit. "Thirst" is the story of this assault and the fight to stop it.
