Pollution, overconsumption, and climate change are threatening communities worldwide with water shortages, but the film – which opens at the E Street Cinema on May 11, 2012 — is entertaining, alarming and surprisingly turns to the Middle East for solutions, if only we will.
The solutions are provided by EcoPeace Middle East, a unique organization that brings together Israelis, Palestinians, and Jordanians who work to fairly share and protect the scarce water of the region and among other projects, to rehabilitate the Jordan River, which has been reduced to a polluted trickle.
