ATO Pictures has acquired U.S. rights to Participant Media’s docu “Last Call at the Oasis,” directed by Jessica Yu.

The film recently premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.

Developed, financed and exec produced by Participant Media, “Oasis” contends that the global water crisis will become the central issue facing our world this century.

The film was produced by Elise Pearlstein and features activist Erin Brockovich, Peter Gleick, Alex Prud’homme, Jay Famiglietti and Robert Glennon.

Deal was negotiated by ATO head of acquisitions Sarah Lash with Josh Braun of Submarine and Jeff Ivers, chief operating officer of Participant Media.

ATO also picked up rights last week to another TIFF title, ensemble comedy “The Oranges.”
