Emmy award-winning director Marina Zenovich’s Water & Power: A California Heist, a National Geographic documentary film executive produced by Academy Award winner Alex Gibney, unfolds like a real-life version of the 1974 film noir “Chinatown,” uncovering the exploits of California’s notorious water barons, who profit off the state’s resources while citizens endure a debilitating water crisis.
