“Running Dry” - Confronting The Crisis

Source: http://www.runningdry.org

“Running Dry” is the first in the series of documentaries about the water crisis by The Chronicles Group. It was filmed on location in China, India, The Middle East and The United States. It was inspired by the late Senator Paul Simon and his book “Tapped Out”.

"Jim Thebaut has accomplished with Running Dry what few documenting water have even attempted. The film gets behind the headlines and superficial treatments to really grapple with the complexities of the global water crisis.

“Thebaut seeks out a huge diversity of expertise from around the world, from former Prime Ministers to local activists, to expose his audience to the many facets of this universal problem.  Moreover, unlike many, he is not content simply to describe the problem, but spends significant time on outlining a clear agenda for helping to solve these seemingly insurmountable issues.  One comes away both informed and energized to do what one can to help."

Aaron Wolf Ph.D, Professor of Geography at Oregon State University

"I'm so pleased that now there is a way for everyone to hear what we heard. Jim Thebaut did an incredible job of capturing just exactly what Paul's message was. I am pleased with it."

Patricia Simon, Wife of the late Senator Paul Simon
