Reel Earth 9: 4th Sept 6pm
My Crisis Joseph Procopio :: Canada :: 2009 :: 4 mins Fourteen-year-old Joseph examines the oil crises for a school project and wonders if there will be a water crises during his lifetime. Blue Gold: World Water Wars Sam Bozzo :: USA :: 2008 :: 89 mins Using a skill ful blend of expert commentary and documentary footage, this film builds a convincing and often shocking tale of how climate change, population growth, politics, greed and ideology are already combining to create catastrophes of the highest order. With Government imposed changes in the management of Canterbury water and talk of privatising water supplies, this might prove to be one of the most topical films of the festival.
