Each month in 2021, Let's Talk About Water will be exploring a major topic in the world of water issues -- presenting you with films, podcast episodes, and additional resources to learn about the world's water woes, and why we should care.
At the end of the month, a selection of feature-length and short films related to the topic will be announced. These award-winning films are available in our Virtual Theatre as part of our second annual Let's Talk About Water Film Festival, culminating the last week of June 2021.
Though our films rotate on a monthly basis in the Virtual Theatre, the additional content, resources, and information on each of our Topics pages are always available to you.

The story of groundwater
The world relies on groundwater, which is getting harder and harder to find. With groundwater close to the surface vanishing, well-drillers are forced to turn to deep drilling for corporate, agricultural, and domestic water needs. But going deep this way is far more expensive and increasingly yields contaminated water.
