BLUE GOLD: WORLD WATER WARS
This film is the 6th in our Environmental Justice/Climate Change Series.
Talking about the water crisis isn’t just muttering about predictions of what could happen if we don’t straighten up and fly right. It is happening, and it is upon us. If you need evidence, there is plenty of it in “Blue Gold: World Water Wars,” a 2008 award winning documentary highlighting the science, politics, and future of water on planet Earth. Blue Gold is endlessly informative, documenting the environmental issues behind why we are rapidly losing our fresh water supplies, the politics behind water ownership and distribution that are worsening the situation, and the scenarios of what will happen as water becomes increasingly scarce. The film captures truly innovative and memorable solutions, many of them immediately ‘do-able’ and nearly free. Featuring inspiring international environmental activists, Canadian Maude Barlow and Indian Vandana Shiva, the film names the names and presents an international analysis hard to ignore. Director: Sam Bozzo.
Discussion, as always, follows viewing of the film. Please bring whatever you wish to eat. We will provide snacks, not a lunch.
