Auteur Film Series Screens "Water"

September 24, 2015 – Collin College's Auteur Film Series will screen "Water" at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 7 at the Spring Creek Campus Living Legends Conference Center as part of its 2015-2016 "Religion: Opiate or Oracle" theme.

The film is set in 1938 and deals with the life of a “widowed” 7-year-old who lives in an ashram filled with complicated women.

"This beautiful film addresses women's issues at a time when Ghandi's revolutionary ideas are beginning to transform India,” said Auteur Film Series Director Dr. Carolyn Perry. “The need for social and political change is played out in a very personal way in the lives of these rural widows."

The screening is free and open to the public. Doors open 30 minutes before the film begins, and seating is limited. Some material may not be suitable for all audiences.

After the screening, there will be a panel discussion led by Collin College faculty and staff.
