Water film showing set

Last Call At the Oasis, a documentary by the Oscar winning Participant Media (Waiting for “Superman,” Charlie Wilson’s War) will be shown in Reno on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Century Riverside theater.

The movie is a look at water policies in an era when corporations like Goldman Sachs are trying to make water a privately owned commodity.

The Washington Post described Oasis as a movie that “represents nonfiction filmmaking at its most urgent, timely and stylistically smooth. … Beginning in Nevada (now the go-to geographic metaphor for American profligacy and greed), Last Call at the Oasis delivers the alarming news that if [Las Vegas] continues to irrigate its dancing fountains and casino tourists at current rates, the nearby Lake Mead will be depleted, rendering the Hoover Dam unable to generate electricity in four years.”
