Blue Gold: World Water Wars (2008, Documentary, 90 minutes)
Based on the ground-breaking book by Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke, Blue Gold: World Water Wars explores the perils of the world’s imminent water shortage. Wars of the future will be fought over water, as they are today over oil, as the source of all life enters the global marketplace and political arena. Corporate giants, private investors, and corrupt governments vie for control of our dwindling fresh water supply, prompting protests, lawsuits, and revolutions from citizens fighting for the right to survive. Past civilizations have collapsed from poor water management.
Blue Gold: World Water Wars won the prestigious Jury Award for Best Documentary at the 2009 Newport Beach Film Festival.
An interactive Q&A session with the film’s director and Orange County resident Sam Bozzo will follow the screening.
