Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival
BLOCK 7: SATURDAY NIGHT FEATURE – Water and Power + Short
ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND BEATING HEARTS
PETER BYCK | USA | 15 MIN
The story of 4th generation cattleman Will Harris’s evolution from an industrial “commodity cowboy” to a sustainable, humane food producer. On any given day there are 100,000 hearts beating at Harris’s White Oak Pastures farm, which has become the lifeblood of his rural Georgia community.
WATER & POWER: A CALIFORNIA HEIST
MARINA ZENOVICH | USA | 87 MIN
Sundance New Climate Feature.
In California’s complex water system, a handful of corporate landowners have gained control of the state’s most precious public resource, while drought has left local homeowners and small farmers with dry wells. California supplies half of the nation’s produce and is the world’s fifth largest food supplier. With our breadbasket at stake, Americans and the world are waking up to a stark reality: Water is the next commodity, and it’s rapidly growing more valuable. As a California resident warns us, “Just watch, you’re going to be next.” This film peels back the layers on this complex world.
