Many serious environmental, social, and economic issues continue to plague the world even amidst a deadly pandemic. One of these is the increasing concerns about water shortage across the globe. Thus, reaching a global audience to share these concerns becomes imperative. Enter ‘Brave Blue World,’ a new documentary about the water crisis, which is set to stream on Netflix on October 21 in about 29 languages.
Brave Blue World is narrated by Liam Neeson and features many prominent names from the entertainment industry speaking for the cause including Matt Damon and Jaden Smith. The documentary is more optimistic in its approach in the way it shows how the current generation is adopting new technologies and innovations for water conservation and management. The trailer makes us more hopeful about the pioneers in the industry who are addressing these challenges in small and big ways.
Executive producer and founder of Brave Blue World Foundation Paul O’Callaghan, who spearheaded the project, said: “I am beyond thrilled that Brave Blue World will be released worldwide. Raising awareness of the global water crisis to help fast-track potential solutions was our ambition when we set out on this journey two years ago. It is thanks to the support of the global water community, including those who have already hosted grassroots screenings, that we have reached this extraordinary milestone and are able to finally give water the profile it deserves.”
“It’s a great film. We all need to see it,” said Liam Neeson. “Every school and every college needs to see it. Every kid has heard of climate change; the film deeply connects with this. It makes water local – something so many of us take for granted.”
Brave Blue World was produced by the Brave Blue World Foundation, in association with its production partners The Water Environment Federation (WEF), SUEZ Water Technologies & Solutions, DuPont Water Solutions, Xylem, L’Oreal, Aqualia, and the Dutch Water Alliance. The film will be available to watch on Netflix on Oct. 21, 2020.
