Thirsty Land – A Documentary Film

Will there Be Enough Water to Survive?
“The story of drought needs to be told! Our global food supply and our very survival as humans depends on clean, abundant fresh water. I want to make the audience think about it every time they take a drink of water, enjoy a shower, or water their lawn. We have been given stewardship of a treasure that’s precious and provides food for the world. It must be managed well so that future generations have the same opportunities we enjoy.” – Conrad Weaver, Producer/Director

Thirsty Land is the story about extreme drought, agriculture, & the water crisis in the Western United States and how these challenges impact farmers, communities, and the environment. The depleted water resources in the American Southwest is one of the most urgent challenges of the 21st century facing agriculture and growing urban communities. The drought on this region has local, national, and global impacts not only for the present, but also for future generations.

We’ve launched this project with the help of our Partners: the Daugherty Water for Food Institute and the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska , and now we’re asking you to join with us to help us complete this important film.
