Go with the flow : DVDs on Water

On the theme of water, with World Water Day coming up on March 22, you might like to check out the following two DVDs in our library’s collection.

Blue Gold: World Water WarsBlue gold : world water wars is based on the book Blue Gold: The Fight to Stop the Corporate Theft of the World’s Water by Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke.  Narrated by Malcolm McDowell, this film gives a chilling portrait of a future world where wars are fought over water, as they are today over oil.

Flow: how did a handful of corporations steal our water?
Investigates the growing privatization of the world’s dwindling fresh water supply from the perspective of politics, economics, pollution and environmental issues, human rights, public health, and the effects of corporate greed and apathetic governments. Features interviews with scientists and activists, who discuss the water crisis at both the global and human scale. Also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions providing practical solutions to the water crisis and those developing new technologies to address the problem.
