BRUNSWICK — Occupy Maine: Bath-Brunswick, Women’s International League for Peace & Freedom, and PeaceWorks are all sponsoring a showing of the film “Bottled Life — The Truth about Nestlé’s Business with Water” at Curtis Memorial Library, 23 Pleasant St., on Sunday, Feb. 3, at 3 p.m.

A news release describes the film as follows:

Swiss journalist Res Gehringer has investigated this money-making phenomena. Nestlé refused to cooperate, on the pretext that it was “the wrong film at the wrong time.”

So Gehringer went on a journey of exploration, researching the story in the USA, Nigeria and Pakistan. His journey into the world of bottled water reveals the schemes and strategies of the most powerful food and beverage company on our planet.

Following the film, Chris Buchanan, Maine coordinator of Defending Water for Life in Maine, will lead a discussion about the efforts to protect water in Maine.

This event is free and open to the public.

Refreshments will be served.
