Kent State Stark Presents an Exclusive Screening of the Environmental Film One Water JACKSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio, April 8, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With a strong commitment to the conservation of our world's resources and in an effort to promote Stark County's awareness of our environment, Kent State University Stark Campus, led by Dean Betsy V. Boze, will celebrate Earth Day 2008 by sponsoring an exclusive screening of One Water, the moving film that celebrates our planet's relationship to water. This will be the first public screening of One Water, which was produced by the University of Miami, since the film's world premiere opening at the Miami International Film Festival. This special opportunity will take place on Tuesday, April 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Palace Theatre, located at 605 Market Avenue North in Canton. Tickets are required for this free event. While they last, tickets may be obtained by visiting the Palace Theatre Box Office or the Kent State Stark Main Hall Information Desk at 6000 Frank Avenue NW in Jackson Township. Filmed in 14 countries, One Water explores the global fresh water crisis and how this invaluable resource touches on every aspect of human life and culture. This spectacular documentary shows the state of the world's fresh water and its affect on people, which is becoming more aggravated by population growth and climate change and compromises the future of all life on the planet. It also raises the essential question about clean, safe water being a basic human right. One Water includes candid interviews with many international notables, such as His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso, the XIV Dalai Lama and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. The film is narrated by UM President Donna E. Shalala and written, produced and co-directed by Sanjeev Chatterjee, Vice Dean of the UM School of Communication and Executive Director of the Knight Center for International Media. "The purpose of the film is to open a window for audiences into the real situations that human beings are faced with in regards to water. This film should motivate individual responsibility and perhaps action," says Chatterjee. Following the film's international premiere at the Miami International Film Festival in March 2008, Rene Rodriguez, movie critic for the Miami Herald, wrote "...the stunning documentary made by the University of Miami about the world's water crisis, is all of those things and more. It's an eloquent cry of despair about the perils facing our most precious resource that is powerful enough to inspire audiences to action without boring them for a single frame. ..."
