Short Description: Thirsty Land is a documentary film about extreme drought, agriculture, & the water crisis in the Western United States and how these challenges impact farmers, cities, and local communities.

We hear from world-renown water and climate experts, farmers, city and state leaders who tell us their stories about managing water resources in an already dry climate, now impacted by drought. The film was shot during the spring, summer and fall of 2015, during the record-breaking drought in California.

Managing water resources in the west is vital to the production of food for Americans and for people all over the world. California's farmers provide approximately 50% of all fruits and vegetables for the United States, and 20% for the world. Without water, food production is not possible.

City and state leaders all across the west are working together with farmers to ensure there's enough water to go around for everyone.
