Throughout 2015 the Hammer and the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability explore the most pressing issues surrounding the current and future state of water in our series The Next Wave.

In this documentary, Edward Burtynsky and Jennifer Baichwal journey around the globe—from the man-made All-American Canal on the Colorado River to the sacred waters of the Allahabad in India to the immense Xiluodu Dam in China—exploring the massive impact that human intervention has had on the world’s water supply. A discussion with Edward Burtynsky and Mark Gold, acting director, Institute of the Environment and Sustainability follows the screening. (2013, Dirs. J. Baichwal & E. Burtynsky, 92 min).

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA. 

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members. 

The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
