Blue Gold: World Water Wars

Dir. Sam Bozzo (USA: 2008), 90 mins Blue Gold: World Water Wars is a documentary film that looks into the demand for our quickly disappearing supply of water throughout the world. Narrated by Malcolm McDowell, the film discusses the effect that governments, corporations and private investors have on the supply and future of water around the world. The film is based on the book by Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke entitled Blue Gold: The Right to Stop the Corporate Theft of the World’s Water. The film made its debut in 2008 at the Vancouver International Film Festival and won the Audience award for Best Environmental Film. The film looks into the causes of the drastic change and possible privatization for such a crucial resource, ultimately questioning the effect the lack of water will have on human survival.
