Tannery Arts Center’s Colligan Theater
1010 River Street, Santa Cruz, CA 95060
You are invited to join Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle at the test screening of their new film, Water Makes Us Wet—An Ecosexual Adventure, narrated by Sandy Stone.
With a poetic blend of curiosity, humor, sensuality, and concern, Water Makes Us Wet chronicles the pleasures and politics of H2O from an ecosexual perspective. Travel around California with Beth Stephens, a UC Santa Cruz professor, and Annie Sprinkle, a former sex worker, in their E.A.R.T.H. Lab mobile unit, as they explore water in the Golden State. Ecosexuality shifts the metaphor “Earth as Mother” to “Earth as Lover” to create a more reciprocal and empathetic relationship with the natural world. On their trip, Annie and Beth interact with a diverse range of folks, including several Santa Cruz residents: Professor Emeritus Donna Haraway, local artist Penny Slinger, UC Santa Cruz students, biologists, water treatment plant workers, scholars and others, climaxing in a shocking event that reaffirms the power of water, life and love. Annie and Beth promise viewers that Water Makes Us Wet is not another dry environmental film.
Join the directors, cast, and crew live, for Q&A after the show. Feedback requested from audience regarding how to shorten the present film version into a 50-minute broadcast version.
