Water is one of the most common things on earth, but the supply of it on this planet is finite, and as the world's population expands, the demands of industry and commerce increase and pollution fouls more and more of our natural resources, potable water is no longer as easy to find as it once was, and many believe that it will become a valuable strategic commodity

Overview

Water is one of the most common things on earth, but the supply of it on this planet is finite, and as the world's population expands, the demands of industry and commerce increase and pollution fouls more and more of our natural resources, potable water is no longer as easy to find as it once was, and many believe that it will become a valuable strategic commodity with the passing of time. Filmmaker Sam Bozzo examines the growing battle over control of the global water supply in the documentary Blue Gold: World Water Wars. The film examines how major corporations and financial institutions are buying up territories where large water supplies can be found, the fight to protect the Great Lakes, allegations that one of the world's most powerful political families is attempting to corner the market on water in Paraguay, and what ordinary citizens can do to keep the water supply free and shared fairly by all. Based on the book by Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke, Blue Gold: World Water Wars was an official selection at the 2009 Palm Springs International Film Festival.

We can't live without water. You may have thought it was a human right. But certain corporations have been plotting to control the water supply on this planet for a while now, and have been moving into place around the globe. Now the World Bank has required certain governments to privatize their precious water supply -- make it a corporate commodity answerable only to stockholders -- as a condition to getting a loan. In some places it is now illegal to catch rainwater, because rain is being considered private property, including the United States. The evil of this worldwide corporate grab for control of your most precious resource is practically inconceivable, but it is happening. Blue Gold: World Water Wars is a landmark documentary that every school, library and church should own and show. Do you want the cost of your water to be controlled by private corporations and stockholders only interested in their bottom line? Do you want to give up your right to the water around you, including rain? It is time to get educated and get active. Start with this film.
