The Water Front is screened in Ann Arbor October 1, the same night as water investor T. Boone Pickens...
The screening in Ann Arbor was a total success. Almost 50 people were present and audience members had an opportunity to speak to Highland Park residents who were on the panel for discussion. Clean Water Action was at the event to discuss the Great Lakes Compact and contextualize the film with all of the recent events in Michigan. One audience member, who used to work for the state government, shared a story about discovering corruption at the state level with regards to rubber stamping permits for Nestle. Communities are up in arms over this. Water investor T. Boone Pickens was making waves at another venue in Michigan the same night but this did not deter the terrific turn out at "The Water Front" Ann Arbor screening.
"I also got great feedback after the screening- people found it extremely inspiring, and there was some really great energy in the room.. so "The Water Front" is continuing to make its way around the Michigan community."
