Powerful Water Documentary Has Global Premiere
Jan 21, 2020
Global water leaders, innovators and activists gathered for the world premiere of Brave Blue World, the powerful documentary that aims to change people’s perception of our most precious – water.
More than 200 supporters and guests from the corporate world, environmental NGOs, charities, impact investors, utilities and film and media representatives joined the celebrations, raising a glass of beer – made from recycled wastewater - to toast the milestone.
Brave Blue World crosses five continents and features a diverse range of innovation, from a NASA research centre that reveals how water is recycled in space and a textile plant in India that is meeting 90% of its water needs from recycled water, to the world’s largest algae-powered wastewater treatment plant in Spain and a children’s home in Kenya where 50 litres of water a day is being provided from humidity in the air, thanks to the work of pioneer Beth Koigi, founder of Majik Water.
O’Callaghan said: “The Brave Blue World premiere saw a unique and diverse gathering of friends, new and old, come together to unite around a common goal - to use the power of storytelling to drive positive change in water. It was a fitting way to conclude one part of our journey and begin another. I felt very proud to have reached this milestone and am grateful for the opportunity to work with such amazing people.”
Neeves said: “We believe that everyone should have the right to safe drinking water and sanitation, yet that is still not a reality for many in our world today. As we saw during the journey of making this film, there is hope and we can all play our part.”
The documentary struck a powerful chord with the audience. Sally Gutierrez, from the US Environmental Protection Agency, said: “I loved the approach. The film is about how leaders around the globe in their own unique ways are solving water problems - which is where the action needs to be. How do we effectively and forever solve this problem?
Brave Blue World will be shown at a variety of screenings, from utilities, to universities and corporations. If you would like to host your own local screening, go to: https://www.braveblue.world/host-a-screening
