Controversy and Conversation: Difficult Dialogues Film Series

The first film (Blue Gold: World Water Wars) will be screened on Thursday, February 5th, at the Terrazas Branch of the Austin Public Library.

Synopsis: Wars of the future will be fought over water as they are over oil today, as the source of human survival enters the global marketplace and political arena. Corporate giants, private investors, and corrupt governments vie for control of our dwindling supply, prompting protests, lawsuits, and revolutions from citizens fighting for the right to survive. Past civilizations have collapsed from poor water management. Can the human race survive?

Sam Bozzo produced, directed, and edited the award-winning "Blue Gold: World Water Wars", his first feature documentary which he shot in nearly a dozen countries and is narrated by Malcolm McDowell.
