Following the ground-breaking documentaries “An Inconvenient Truth”, “Food, Inc.” and “Waiting for Superman,” Participant Media now turns its attention to the water crisis with the new film, “Last Call at the Oasis.” A rallying cry to ignite a national conversation about the water crisis, “Last Call at the Oasis” illuminates the vital role water plays in our lives, exposes the defects in the current system and shows communities already struggling with its ill-effects.  Featuring activist Erin Brockovich, respected water experts including Peter Gleick, Jay Famiglietti and Robert Glennon and social entrepreneurs championing revolutionary solutions, the film posits that we can manage this problem if we are willing to act now.
Lynn Hirshfield, the senior vice president of publishing at Participant Media, will participate in a Q & A moderated by Lenny Mendonca, the founder of the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company and director at McKinsey & Company, immediately following the film.
