Film Screening: Lightning In A Bottle

March 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Florida Humanities, Tampa Bay Water, and the St. Petersburg Museum of History for a film screening and discussion on the 2023 documentary Lightning in A Bottle. The film explores the “water wars” that plagued the Tampa Bay region in the 1990s, and how local leaders came together to find a solution. A panel discussion will immediately follow the film.

Moderated by Dr. Christopher Meindl, Director of the Florida Studies Program at the University of South Florida, panelists Steve Seibert (former Pinellas County Commissioner), Ed Turanchik (former Hillsborough County Commissioner), and Council Member Lisset Hanewicz (City of St. Petersburg, Vice Chairman of Tampa Bay Water) will discuss the past, present, and future of Tampa Bay’s water.

This program is organized by Florida Humanities, with partial support from the National Endowment for the Humanities and Tampa Bay Water, and the St. Petersburg Museum of History.
