Film to explore ‘water wars’


CLINTON —  “Blue Gold: World Water Wars” is the next film in the Prince of Peace Pax Christi four-part series, From REAL to REEL: a Film Series With a Message. It will be shown on Tuesday, Feb. 8, at The Canticle, home of the Sisters of St. Francis, 841 13th Ave. N., Clinton, beginning at 6:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

The Sisters say “Blue Gold” exposes the corporate giants, private investors and corrupt governments who are vying for control of our dwindling supply of our most precious “commodity” — water.  Wars of the future will be fought over water as they are fought over oil today, say experts on the issue. The source of human survival — water — has entered the global marketplace and political arena, prompting protests, lawsuits and revolutions from citizens fighting for the right to survive. Past civilizations have collapsed from poor water management. The film asks: Can the human race survive? 

There will be discussion and refreshments following the film.
