"Blue Gold" Kicks Off Unique Film Series Tonight

Before Blue Gold: World Water Wars screened at April's Newport Beach Film Festival, Irvine-based indie filmmaker Sam Bozzo vowed it would be his first and last documentary because it proved so arduous to make.

At least Blue Gold, which is about the world's water shortage and based on the ground-breaking book of the same name by Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke, would go on to win the festival's jury prize for best documentary. Now the doc kicks off tonight's Cinema Sage Hill, a free monthly film series that is open to the public and presented through a unique partnership between Newport Beach Film Festival and Sage Hill School.

Created to foster an appreciation and an awareness of independent films and expose audiences to the creative aspects of filmmaking, the series screens films in the new state of the art cultural facility on the campus of Sage Hill School, 20402 Newport Coast Drive, Newport Coast. Bozzo will be on hand to interact with the audience. Showtime is 7:30 p.m.

The event's flier follows . . .
