FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Loyola Hosts Screenings of Tapped and Blue Gold
As part of its 2010 Water Colloquium, Loyola University Chicago will host screenings of the two documentary films Tapped and Blue Gold. The 2010 Water Colloquium, a week-long series of events intended to raise awareness of the global water crisis, will cover topics such as the debate over privatizing water supplies, and the environmental impacts of plastic bottled water.
Tapped is a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of the bottled water industry, an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity: our water. 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 are over oil today, as the source of all life enters the global marketplace and political arena.
