Blue Gold: World Water Wars DVD
Documentary on water as a public resource and corporate commodity
Blue Gold: World Water Wars digs deep into the conflict surrounding our global need for a reliable source of fresh water. Worldwide demands for fresh water have been pushed beyond the finite supply, and population explosions and industrial and human waste have led to the desertification of Earth. Yet individuals continue to pollute, divert, pump and waste our most precious resource. This award-winning documentary directed by Sam Bozzo is based on the book Blue Gold: The Fight to Stop the Corporate Theft of the World's Water, by Maude Barlow and Tony Clark. Bozzo's thought-provoking film examines the problems created by privatization and commoditization of water around the globe. 90 minutes.
