You are invited to attend a free screening of Water & Power, the feature film debut from writer/director Richard Montoya. The film is based on his award-winning play of the same name which was originally produced at the Mark Taper Forum for Culture Clash. Water & Power was shot over 12 extraordinary nights in Los Angeles. The film tells the story of two brothers nicknamed Water & Power by their hard-working father who was an irrigation field man for the famed Department of Water & Power of Los Angeles (LADWP). From the blue-collar housing projects of the city’s Eastside, to the very corridors of power where deals are made in the City of Angels, Water & Power explores a cautionary tale with a Chicano twist. Water & Power is told in the classic L.A. noir style with a darkly humorous tone, a hallmark for which Montoya is known in theater and television.
