The Chronicles Group held an “Evening of Film and Art: Raising Awareness and Funds for the Global Drinking Water Crisis”  on Thursday, September 20, 2007, from 6:00 — 8:00 p.m. The event was hosted by The Embassy for the Republic of Poland, 2640 Sixteenth Street, N.W. District of Columbia.

The final screening of RUNNING DRY in 2006 was in South Africa on November 6, 2006.  Producer / director Jim Thebaut and narrator Jane Seymour was in attendance at the event, which was held at the CSIR Convention Center.

RUNNING DRY was premiered last year and was presented in a variety of powerful and effective venues which included geopolitical, academic, corporate and film festival experiences. This included a March 2005 Washington DC presentation in the Russell Senate Building for members and staff of the US Congress. During this event copies of the documentary were passed out to every member of Congress. Furthermore, it was also screened at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and the Woodrow Wilson Center. Consequently, the RUNNING DRY project was extremely helpful in the evolution and passage of the SENATOR PAUL SIMON WATER FOR THE POOR ACT.


In addition, on World Water Day 2005 the documentary was presented in Beijing to Government officials, press, scholors and students and in October was presented in Brussels to representatives within the European Union.


Significant presentations also took place at major US Universities.

Future University screenings are scheduled or are in the process of being planned for Oregon State University, Lewis & Clark Law School, Ohio State University, Yale University, the University of Pennsylvania and numerous others.

In 2006 the documentary is scheduled to be presented on March 10th at the Delray Beach Film Festival, Boca Raton, Florida and on May 7th at the Los Angeles Harbor International Film Festival.


A very powerful and effective venue for presenting RUNNING DRY has been the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, Ca. This included its World Premier in February 2005 and several other screenings for members within the academic community.


The documentary was presented in Colorado Springs at the National Association Water Companies Conference. The effect has been powerful in establishing corporate responsibility regarding the global water crisis.
