Film  “Blue Gold”

Date: April 13, 2014
Location: Floyd Country Store
This documentary by Sam Bozzo presents a powerful picture of the state of our water supply. On a global level we are using this limited resource with little regard to the future, leading to desertification in many parts of the world, and increasing struggles for power over our water supplies. The film addresses why it is important to understand the factors affecting the quality and supply of our water, and what ordinary citizens can do to keep the supply of water free and fairly shared.

The film will be followed by a discussion of the water topics that affect us close to home.

Doors open at 6:00pm for a ‘Goodbye Winter’ supper. The film starts around 6:30pm. Film tickets available at the door for a donation of $5. Supper is available for an additional donation.
