ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A new feature-length documentary film titled Brave Blue World premiered in Los Angeles on December 16 and examines how new technologies and innovations can create a sustainable water future.
The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is a production partner for Brave Blue World and will use the film to raise public awareness about the solutions to water challenges.
“It is important to convey a sense of hope and spirit of optimism for water and that is why WEF is thrilled to be a production partner for Brave Blue World,” said Walt Marlowe, WEF Executive Director. “By showing a path to a sustainable water future Brave Blue World can help us to influence leaders, increase resources, change policies, and improve stewardship of water.”
The pioneering water film features compelling stories, beautiful scenery, and examples from across five continents to show novel ways of tackling water problems. It explores developments in areas such as water reuse, nutrient recovery, energy generation, decentralized treatment, and the digitization of water. The film includes interviews with a variety of water experts, as well as high-profile advocates Matt Damon and Jaden Smith.
Brave Blue World also includes a segment with Tom Kunetz, Immediate Past President of WEF, at the world’s largest nutrient recovery facility, the Stickney Water Reclamation Plant operated by the Metropolitan Water District of Greater Chicago.
