Let's Talk About Water 2017

Western Europe
Delft, the Netherlands

Let´s Talk About Water aims to start a dialogue between scientists, students and the general public by bringing film and water science together. This year’s theme is Water and Power. The title is derived from an experimental film from a California filmmaker, Pat O’Neill, but it is also the name of the utility company in California and the name of the book, Water and Power: the conflict over Los Angeles water supply in the Owen Valley by William Kahrl, upon which Chinatown, the film, is based. The events organised during the programme will take place at Filmhuis Lumen and UNESCO-IHE.

Feature films include:

  • Liquid Assets, (Penn State University, PBS), 90 minutes
  • Chinatown, Roman Polanski, US, 1974, 130 minutes
  • Freak-out, Carl Javer, Switzerland, 2015, 89 minutes
  • Before the Flood, Fisher Stevens, US, 2016, 96 minutes
