Global water organization to host a screening of newly released film for Texas dignitaries
— Doc Hendley, founder of Wine To Water
DALLAS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, May 5, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Global nonprofit, Wine To Water (WTW) is hosting a private premiere screening event for their new documentary, Beyond Water. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the Wine To Water founder and CNN Hero, Doc Hendley.
The event will be held Tuesday, May 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Studio Movie Grill, 452 Lincoln Square in Arlington. The evening will include a Q&A with Hendley, three volunteers whose experience is depicted in the film, and Texas Agriculture Commissioner, Sid Miller. Miller will provide his input on how water issues are affecting Texas communities.
“We purposely selected Texas as their commitment to the environment and Earth Day are evident with events like EarthX,” said Hendley. “We are pleased to host this groundbreaking premiere event in the heart of Texas.”
Founded in 2004, WTW has made an impact all over the world developing hygiene practices in schools, digging wells for villages, and providing water filters to families in need. These families often walk miles a day just to bring water to their homes. The documentary tells the story of some of these individuals and the WTW volunteers from different countries, backgrounds and beliefs, all moved by the same plight.
Beyond Water was filmed in Nepal, the Amazon and Dominican Republic, and was created in association with WTW global partner, Lenovo. The theme “beyond water” reinforces integrated water and sanitation initiatives which are key for creating impacts that lead to transformational change. Water is only the beginning – clean water leads to economic sustainability, education, women’s empowerment, healthcare, and economic growth.
WTW action in the U.S. is also a vital part of their work. Often this work consists of providing disaster relief; their most recent efforts in the U.S. include Southwest Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian. They also provided boots on the ground in Jackson, MS for emergency aid and a recycling program to minimize the impact of millions of water bottles being brought into a community.
“Our goal in creating this documentary is to bring awareness to the global water crisis and to stress how important donations and volunteerism are to continue supporting communities on every continent,” added Hendley.
