23 Dec ASPEN FILM, JERUSALEM U & ASPEN CENTER FOR ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES PARTNER TO PRESENT SCREENING OF “SUSTAINABLE NATION”
Aspen, CO (December 23, 2019): Aspen Film, in partnership with Jerusalem U and the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies, will present the hour-long documentary SUSTAINABLE NATION on Sunday, January 12 at 7:30 PM at Metropolitan’s Isis Theatre (406 E. Hopkins, Aspen). The film follows a trio of innovators who are doing their part to bring sustainable water solutions to dangerously arid and dehydrated places around the world- to underdeveloped communities in Africa and India, and to farmers in central California. A Q&A with the film’s Executive Producer, Raphael Stone, and ACES CEO, Chris Lane will follow the screening.
Tickets are $15 for general admission and can be purchased online at www.metrotheatres.com; Aspen Film and ACES member tickets are $10 and must be purchased at the box office.
SUSTAINABLE NATION, the new hour-long documentary from Imagination Productions, follows three individuals who are doing their part to bring sustainable water solutions to an increasingly thirsty planet. Using technology developed in water-poor Israel, they are working to change the status quo of a world where one in 10 people lacks access to safe drinking water.
But water is just the beginning. The work of this visionary trio highlights the nexus between food, energy and water and underscores how solving these enormous challenges can help free women, and the world, from life threatening poverty, illness and lack of opportunity.
From the creators of Netflix-featured Beneath the Helmet: From High School to the Home Front, and PBS-featured Israel Inside: How a Small Nation Makes a Big Difference, SUSTAINABLE NATION shows how fixing global water issues is not only a matter of life and death, it’s the start of healing the world.
WHAT: SUSTAINABLE NATION
WHEN: Sunday, January 12 at 7:30 PM; Q&A with the film’s Executive Producer, Raphael Stone, and ACES CEO, Chris Lane will follow the screening.
