BLUE GOLD sheds light on the world’s rapidly approaching water crisis and suggests that wars of the future will be fought over water, as they today over oil, as the source of all life enters the global marketplace and political arena. 

"Ultimately the world's water supply is at risk of disappearing, and rich or poor, no one can't escape it. Get informed and inspired – watch this film." (Treehugger)
