Once Was Water

Once Was Water

We have been given all the water on earth that will ever exist. There will be no one, human created, technological solution whether the technology embraces water wheels, purifying sea water, or processing waste. There is no easy solution for our overconsumption of freshwater, a resource long mistakenly thought to be infinitely renewable. There is no easy exit from drought and pollution.

Once Was Water is an upbeat, solutions-oriented documentary that tells the story of how the driest city in America, in the middle of the Mojave desert, leads the United States in sustainable water conservation. The efforts of Las Vegas, in its search for sustainability, have produced important solutions, technological, political, and financial that have on-going global importance.

53 minutes

Once Was Water seeks to bring a fundamental understanding to diverse audiences globally, of the shared effects of the escalating global water crisis and possible solutions found in unlikely places.
