Blue Gold: World Water Wars (2008)
In every corner of the globe corporations are polluting, diverting, pumping and wasting our limited supply of fresh water. The rampant overdevelopment of agriculture, housing and industry increases the demand for fresh water far beyond the finite supply, resulting in the growing desertification of the earth. At the same time corporate giants force developing countries to privatise their water supply. Military control of water emerges, and a new geo-political map is being created, setting the stage for water wars. Directed by Sam Bozzo. Running time: 90 minutes.
Edible City (2012)
The story of pioneers who are digging their hands into the earth, working to transform their communities and to do something truly revolutionary: to create local food systems that are socially just, environmentally sound, economically viable, and resilient to climate change and the collapse of markets. Directed by Andrew Hasse. Running time: 60 minutes.
Water on the Table (2010)
Is water a commodity, like shoes or soft drinks, or is it a human right, like air? Maude Barlow campaigns internationally to have water declared a human right. “Water must be declared a public trust and a human right that belongs to the people, the ecosystem and the future, and preserved for all time and practice in law. Clean water must be delivered as a public service, not a profitable commodity.” Directed by Liz Marshall. Running time: 79 minutes.
