“Over Troubled Waters” Documentary Comes to Brentwood

For those of you who could not make the screening of Over Troubled Waters on October 2nd in Antioch, you have another chance to see the documentary this Saturday at the Cinelux Delta Cinema in Downtown Brentwood while also enjoying the Farmers Market thanks to Oakley Councilman and Assembly District 11 Candidate Jim Frazier who arranged the showing.

“Over Troubled Waters” Sustainable Water Advocates Premiere Film on Water Wars Over Troubled Waters, a documentary about the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, will premiere in Brentwood on Saturday, October 6, at the Delta Cinema — doors open at 10:00 am. Following the screening will be a question and answer session with water policy advocates. Over Troubled Waters will be the centerpiece of a public education effort to stop the building of peripheral tunnels.

In this visually rich documentary, Ed Begley  Jr. narrates the story of how the people of the Delta are fighting to protect the region they love and to encourage saner, sustainable water policies for all the people of California.“This is our chance to tell the real Delta story,” said Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, executive director of Restore the Delta, which produced the documentary. “This film reveals how powerful forces are using fear of flooding and earthquakes to make a case for transforming a unique, beautiful, productive region into a permanent way station for water going somewhere else. They are trying to shore up an outdated water system with a massive, multi-billion dollar water transfer project that Californians will be paying for decades.”It should be noted that, Over Troubled Waters has been designated as a participant in this year’s 9th Annual Artivist Film Festival to be held November 1-4 in Hollywood, California. “ARTIVIST” is the only Film Festival dedicated to ‘Raising Awareness for Human Rights, Children’s Advocacy, Environmental Preservation, and Animal Advocacy through International Films’. In 2012, the UNITED NATIONS officially accepted the Artivist Collective, Inc., producer of the annual Artivist Film Festival and Artivist Awards, as an NGO member of the United Nations Department of Public Information (UN-DPI).
