BLUE GOLD is an excellent film about the catastrophic brink at which we stand globally regarding water.

The film makes clear that in every corner of the globe, we are polluting, diverting, pumping, and wasting our limited supply of fresh water at an exponential rate as population and technology grows. The rampant over development of agriculture, housing and industry increase the demands for fresh water well beyond the finite supply, resulting in the desertification of our earth. A line is being crossed as water becomes a commodity.

BLUE GOLD follows numerous worldwide examples of people fighting for their basic right to water, a phenomenon that is fast approaching us right here in British Columbia.
