About The Film


The Cherokee Word For Water is a feature-length motion picture inspired by the true story of the struggle for, opposition to, and ultimate success of a rural Cherokee community to bring running water to their families by using the traditional concept of "gadugi" working together to solve a problem.

Help us bring The Cherokee Word for Water to your hometown!

We’ve partnered with Tugg.com,  a web-platform that helps individuals, groups and organizations to set up personalized movie screenings in theaters across the country. The process is simple - YOU pick the time, place and date, and Tugg will reserve the theater and give you a personalized event page for your screening. Here’s the trick though - you need to pre-sell a certain amount of tickets in order for the event to be confirmed!

Once you get your event page, it’s up to you to spread the word to your community and let folks know the event will only take place if enough tickets are reserved before a deadline. Once enough tickets are sold, your event will be confirmed and you can sit back and enjoy the show! If there aren’t enough tickets sold, then no one will be charged for the reservation and the screening will be called off.
