Carn screens drama about water privatisation 12.03.15

A FILM outlining what happens when a huge multi-national tries to privatise a community's water supply ("including even the rain") will be screened next week in Carndonagh.
'Even the Rain', written by Paul Laverty and directed by Iciar Bollain, tells the story of a film crew who arrive in Bolivia to make a movie about colonisation and find themselves caught up in what became known as the Bolivian Water Wars.
It depicts a David and Goliath grassroots battle watched by the film-makers who get drawn into a "cauldron of emotions" as a "a modern-day colonisation" plays out before them. The challenge to take a position "becomes almost unbearable".
The free screening of the 2010 drama has been organised by Inishowen environmental group Celebrate Water in association with Carndonagh Library.
"At once beautiful and disturbing, provocative and inspiring, the film and the story it tells is eminently relevant to current questions around water and access to water on the island of Ireland and on the planet as a whole," said a spokesperson.

The film will be shown at Carndonagh Library on Thursday, March 19, 2015 from 6pm-8pm. All welcome and admission is free. Please note that it carries a 15 Cert. An informal discussion of the film at Cafe Banba from 8pm-9pm will also be on offer for attendees.
