Liquid Assets: A film premiere, discussion, and reception

Monday, November 17, 2008

7:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 North State Street, Chicago


Water quality, supply, and management are intertwined with social equity, environmental sustainability, and a healthy economy.  The 2008 documentary Liquid Assets explores the history, engineering, and political and economic challenges of our public and private water systems, and engages communities in local discussion about drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure issues.  


Join Chicago’s Metropolitan Planning Council, New York’s Regional Plan Association, the Illinois Humanities Council, and the American Society of Civil Engineers for the Chicago premiere of Liquid Assets, a 2008 documentary film on our nation’s water infrastructure crisis, and a discussion with the director, Stephanie Ayanian.  


A reception will begin at 7:00 p.m., and the film (90 minutes) will start promptly at 8:00 p.m.  A facilitated discussion will follow, and then coffee and dessert will be available for those wishing to continue discussion in a less formal setting.


There is no fee for the film premiere, but you must register online at www.metroplanning.org/calendar.asp.  Seating is limited to 197.


If you have any questions, please contact Josh Ellis at jellis@metroplanning.org, or 312.863.6045.  This premiere coincides with a conference held earlier in the day - Rebuilding and Renewing America: Infrastructure Choices in the Great Lakes Megaregion.
