California’s ongoing drought has forced millions in the state to conserve how much they drink, cook and water their lawns.
For many impoverished communities in the Central Valley, this means living off of bottled water and sometimes even paying to use a stranger's shower.
Amidst these extreme conditions in Kern County sits a water basin that decades ago was given to a California billionaire under questionable circumstances. National Geographic’s “Water and Power: A California Heist” explores this true story.
Director and executive producer Marina Zenovich joins environmental attorney and documentary protagonist Adam Keats to discuss the film and its implications for California’s water wars.
