Event Description

Award-winning documentary “Tapped” comes to CPCC Central Campus: February 11, 2010
Film analyzes the big business of the bottled water industry

WHAT: Central Piedmont Community College’s (CPCC) Center for Sustainability, Green Drinks of Charlotte and Habitat and Wildlife Keepers (HAWK), are pleased to present a special screening of the award-winning documentary “Tapped” on CPCC’s Central Campus.

“Tapped” examines the big business of bottled water and takes a behind-the-scenes look at this unregulated industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity – water.

Directed by Stephanie Soechtig and produced by the same team who made “Who Killed the Electric Car,” this inspiring documentary trails the bottled water industry, painting a powerful portrait of the lives affected by this industry and the businesses and individuals caught at the intersection of big business and the public’s right to water.

Don’t miss this must-see film which will leave you begging the question, “Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any article of clothing?”

WHEN: Thursday, February 11; 7p.m.

WHERE: Tate Hall, Overcash Center, CPCC Central Campus, 1206 Elizabeth Ave., Charlotte

CONTACT:
Tickets are $7. To order tickets, please call the CPCC Box Office at 704.330.6534 or visit tix.cpcc.edu. Free parking is available in the faculty/staff parking deck, accessible from East Fourth Street.

Thanks for posting this event, Carol. I just watched the documentary "Blue Gold" last night. We are truly moving in a horrifying direction.

Rich, water is the next oil....future wars will not be about who controls the oil but who controls the water.

I would be happy to share kefir grains...mine are quite robust and multiplying like rabbits!

Thanks for organizing this Carol! I keep telling people who are obsessing over saving power (also important of course!) that five and ten years from now, we will still have cheap power. But we'll probably be shocked about what we have to do for water.
By the way, how's your keffir? I went on a trip and my fridge got unplugged. Not a disaster--nothing much in there. Except my Keffir was hibernating. I've been trying to nurse it back to life but it hasn't started racing any laps yet. Might need to borrow a couple of grains to get going!
Cheers, Rich
