Blue Gold: World Water Wars is a 2008 seminal documentary film that comes to you from filmmaker Sam Bozzo who craftily embodies the arguments posited in the book Blue Gold: The Right to Stop the Corporate Theft of the World's Water by Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke. The film is narrated by Malcom McDowell who presents each discussion in a very digestible manner. The film, and the book, suggest that one day water will be just as valuable, if not more valuable, than oil. If nothing is done to preserve the Earth's natural reserves of blue gold, corporate tyrants, villainous governments, and bigheaded private investors would scramble and fight for every last drop.It's implications suggest that the human race could quite possibly engage in a full blown world war should water become so scarce. Blue Gold received several awards including the Ecology Now! award at the European Independent Film Festival and Best Environmental Film at the Vancouver International Film Festival.
