Ahead of World Water Day, please join for an advance screening of “Beyond the Brink,” Jim Thebault’s new documentary on the national security threats arising from California’s evolving water crisis, followed by a panel discussion on climate change driven water scarcity as an emerging global security concern.
“Beyond the Brink” depicts the water and food nexus and its evolving implications for national security through the lens of California’s San Joaquin Valley, a microcosm of this global crisis. The film was conceived, directed and produced by veteran social documentarian Jim Thebaut of The Chronicles Group.
The “Beyond the Brink” screening is 90 minutes long and will be followed by a 30-minute panel discussion with experts from the film.
