Last Call at The Oasis: New Water Documentary Details a Global Water Crisis

Solving water shortages in different cities and countries across the world won't be easy. In the United States, Las Vegas is the poster child for communities dealing with a depleting water supply. The new documentary Last Call at The Oasis details how communities in Las Vegas, California and other cities have battled to keep water flowing through the tap. The film also details issues that are being fought over in many communities like harmful toxins from industrial plants poisoning municipal water supplies and the debate over drinking recycled waste water. Last Call at The Oasis plays this weekend at Century Suncoast theaters. Academy Award winning Last Call at The Oasis director, Jessica Yu joins us to talk about the film.
