About This Event

Experience the powerful and urgent documentary that follows activist Layla Staats as she uncovers the personal stories and faces behind the ongoing battle for clean drinking water on First Nations reserves.

Layla Staats, a passionate and determined advocate, guides viewers through the harsh realities facing these communities in their quest for a basic human right: safe, drinkable water. While Canadians are often bombarded with statistics—such as the fact that there are currently 32 long-term boil-water advisories in 28 communities—the film brings these numbers to life with intimate and compelling stories from the people directly affected.

Prepare to be moved and enlightened as this documentary breaks down complex issues and exposes the profound human impact of the clean water crisis on First Nations reserves. By showcasing personal narratives, the film provides a window into the resilience and strength of these communities as they navigate the challenges of systemic neglect and environmental injustice.

All proceeds from this film will go to the Blue Mountain Watershed Trust, supporting the cause of clean water for all. Don't miss this chance to see activism in action and learn more about the fight for water rights on First Nations reserves. Secure your tickets and be part of the movement for change!
