Sustainable Dunn and UW-Stout's Sustainability Office are hosting the screening of the documentary film Last Call at the Oasis at UW-Stout's Harvey Hall on Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 7 p.m.  

The film looks at how the global water crisis will be the central issue facing the world this century and was produced by Participant Media, the company responsible for An Inconvenient Truth, Food, Inc. and Waiting for Superman.

The film illuminates the vital role water plays, exposes defects in the current system and depicts communities that are struggling. It features activist Erin Brockovich and experts, including Peter Gleick, Alex Prud'homme, Jay Famiglietti and Robert Glennon.

The event is free and open to the public, as part of the Food for Thought Film Series co-sponsored by UW-Stout's Ally Initiatives, Center for Applied Ethics, the University Library and numerous local organizations and businesses.
