The film approaches water use from a development standpoint as well as a political one, examining the ways money, power, and intrigue were involved in creating the abundance we have come to rely upon. Advances in technology and policy help to create a picture that is perhaps more relevant now than ever before. This event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Ron Solórzano, Regional Librarian, at (805) 218-9146. The Ojai Library is located at 111 East Ojai Avenue in Ojai, CA.
