This French historical drama concerns a bizarre battle royale over a valuable natural spring in a remote French farming community, starring award-winning actor Gerard Depardieu. Come to watch one of the best movies in francophone cinematic history and stay to learn about water quantity issues in Durham.
This year’s Ethics Film Series investigates the ethical and moral questions that arise when water becomes “the enemy,” the cursed necessity that is too scarce or too polluted. The series splits its time between examining water scarcity and water pollution as drivers of human action.
The screening will begin at 7 p.m. in the Ahmadieh Family Conference Room, West Duke 101. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Following the film, there will be a Q&A with Danielle Adams, supervisor for the Durham County Soil & Water Department.
The screening is free and open to the public. Refreshments and light snacks are provided. Free parking is available.
