Water & Power: A California Heist

Water & Power takes a look at the incredible drought that has gripped the valley’s of California for years. While the barons of the water profit from the scarce commodity, every-day folk, small communities, and family farmers struggle every day in a state of crisis. This film takes a deeper look into the laws and regulations controlling California’s water supply and how it is being abused to keep the rich and powerful comfortably where they sit. What does this mean for the future of not only California, but of our world as a whole. With water becoming less and less accessible, it is simultaneously becoming more valuable.

Directed by Marina Zenovich. Produced by Alex Gibney.
