World Premiere

Sustainable Nation

Directed by Micah Smith

Israel | 60 minutes | 2019

The majesty and beauty of water is at the heart of this powerfully moving documentary that follows three individuals who are selflessly doing their part to bring sustainable water solutions to an increasingly thirsty planet. Using solutions developed in water-deprived Israel, they are working to change the status quo of a world where one in 10 people lacks access to safe drinking water. But water is just the beginning. The work of this visionary trio highlights the connection between food, energy, and water and underscores how solving these enormous challenges can help free the world from life-threatening poverty, illness, and lack of opportunity. From the creators of the audience award-winning films Beneath the Helmet (MJFF 2015) and When the Smoke Clears (MJFF 2018), Sustainable Nation shows how fixing global water issues is not only a matter of life and death, it is the start of healing the world. This illuminating documentary is a must-see for its encouraging and essential message.

Producer Raphael Shore will be in attendance to introduce the film and participate in an extended conversation with the audience afterward.
