Joan & Dick Stroud Memorial Lecture Presents Watermark

A documentary on how water shapes us and how we shape water

Event Details

4 p.m., Sunday, September 14
Unionville High School
$15, includes light refreshments

Every living thing requires water. We humans interact with it in a myriad of ways, numerous times a day. But how often do we consider the complexity of that interaction? And, unless confronted by scarcity, when do we meditate on its ubiquity in creating, sustaining and enriching life?

WATERMARK is a feature documentary film that brings together diverse stories from around the globe about our relationship with water: how we are drawn to it, what we learn from it, how we use it and the consequences of that use.

Shot in stunning ultra high-definition video and full of soaring aerial perspectives, this film shows water as a terraforming element and the scale of its reach, as well as the magnitude of our need and use.

In WATERMARK, the viewer is immersed in a world defined by a magnificent force of nature that we all too often take for granted — until it’s gone.

Please join us for this awe-inspiring film. Light refreshments will be served and there will be brief remarks by Stroud Center’s director, Bern Sweeney, Ph.D.
