Rootworks Presents…

The Water Project Minnesota Screening

Rootworks is proud to present ‘The Water Project’. The Water Project is a documentary that follows the journey of 3 friends from Toronto who decided to travel back home to Ethiopia and Somalia. They witness mass starvation and hunger fuelled by 2 years of drought. Despite the many challenges they face, they do not falter from their one purpose: find a sustainable solution.

Join us on Friday April 19th at The University of Minnesota for the Screening of The Water Project. This evening will feature a documentary screening, followed by a Q&A with the producers, guest speakers and an art gallery. Free refreshments will also be provided.
