They peddle adventure and soulful abandon; they promise a do-it-yourself life unfettered by designer labels and home loans, one written by the light of campfires with the hand of wine, music, lust and dust... a wild, electric sense of freedom..\" -SfWeekly

 National Theatrical Premier of Thirst: A groundbreaking film that
portrays the conflict between public stewardship of water and private
profit Roxie Theater 3117 16th St @ Valencia, San Francisco
Fri June 18 - Thu June 24 6:15 pm, 8:00pm, 9:30pm
weekend matinees 2:00 and 4:00 pm
 Bay Area filmmakers Alan Snitow and Deborah Kaufman will attend Fri.,
Sat. and Sunday showings at 6:15 and 8:00 for post screening
Guest speakers will be present at many showings.  On Thurs., June 24
after the 6:15 and 8:00 showings Jim Schultz from the Democracy Center
will give an update on the struggle against water privatization in
Cochabamba, Bolivia.
 THIRST tells the stories of communities in Bolivia, India, and the
United States that are asking these fundamental questions, as water
becomes the most valuable global resource of the 21st Century.
 Global corporations are rapidly buying up local water supplies and
privatizing water utilities in places like Stockton, CA.  As
communities suddenly lose control of their most precious resource,
citizens and governments battle to reaffirm public stewardship and
basic water rights.
 This ground breaking film reveals how efforts by powerful corporations
to commodify the world\'s water supplies have become a strong catalyst
for community resistance to globalization.

# Thu June 24 7 pm Film: The End of Suburbia, Oil Depletion and 
the Collapse of the American Dream
 Since World War II North Americans have invested 
much of their newfound wealth in suburbia. It has promised a sense of 
space, affordability, family life and upward mobility. As the 
population of suburban sprawl has exploded in the past 50 years, so 
too the suburban way of life has become embedded in the American 
consciousness. Suburbia, and all it promises, has become the American 
Dream. But as we enter the 21st century, serious questions are 
beginning to emerge about the sustainability of this way of life. 
With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, The End of Suburbia 
explores the American Way of Life and its prospects as the planet 
approaches a critical era, as global demand for fossil fuels begins 
to outstrip supply. World Oil Peak and the inevitable decline of 
fossil fuels are upon us now, some scientists and policy makers argue 
in this documentary. The consequences of inaction in the face of this 
global crisis are enormous. What does Oil Peak mean for North 
America? As energy prices skyrocket in the coming years, how will the 
populations of suburbia react to the collapse of their dream? Are 
today\'s suburbs destined to become the slums of tomorrow? And what 
can be done NOW, individually and collectively, to avoid The End of 
Suburbia ? Directed by Gregory Greene. Produced by Barry Silverthorn. 
Hosted by Barrie Zwicker. Featuring James Howard Kunstler, Peter 
Calthorpe, Michael Klare, Richard Heinberg, Matthew Simmons, Mike 
Ruppert, Julian Darley, Colin Campbell, Kenneth Deffeyes, Ali Samsam 
Bakhtiari and Steve Andrews.  $5 - $15 sliding scale, notaflof
