Thirst (2004), by Alan Snitow and Deborah Kaufman, documents water rights activism in the United States, Bolivia, and India. Effective interviews (community leaders/activists Oscar Olivera and Rajendra Singh, above) and scenes from a variety of meetings and forums give a voice to those opposed to water privatization, with the most dramatic action from the water wars in Cochabamba, Bolivia (top still).
