Palouse Basin Logo

Brave Blue World is the first honest, hopeful documentary to paint an optimistic picture of how humanity is successfully adopting new technologies and innovations to fundamentally rethink how we manage water. Producers of the 50 minute documentary film have been on an incredible journey to meet with pioneers and innovators who are addressing global water and sanitation challenges.

The film highlights scientific and technological advancements that have been taking place to ensure the world’s population has access to clean water and safe sanitation services and the environment is protected.

The documentary uses real-life stories with proven outcomes to challenge commonly held assumptions about water. Their stories, the sort that never make the news, reveal a bright future for our most precious resource. We are at a momentous tipping point in the history of mankind’s relationship with water and the future is better than we think it is – the Brave Blue World Foundation serves to take this message to as many viewers as possible.

Narrated by actor Liam Neeson, Brave Blue World features scientists, engineers and activists from around the world, including actor Matt Damon, co-founder of global nonprofit and actor/musician Jaden Smith.

How lucky are we that we’re the ones who get to solve this. In 100 years, people are gunna wish they were alive when they could solve a problem this big.”
