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.
