Emmy award-winning director Marina Zenovich’s “Water & Power: A California Heist” unfolds like a real-life version of the 1974 film noir “Chinatown.” This National Geographic documentary film uncovers the ruthless exploits of California’s notorious water barons, who profit off the state’s resources while everyday citizens endure a debilitating water crisis.

Executive Producer Lynne Kirby will join UCSB Professor of Film & Media Studies Constance Penley for a post-screening Q&A.
