Precious Bodily Fluids

The rhetoric of water conservation is delightfully inflammatory. On this, our last class day together, we’ll watch some clips from the movie Blue Gold: World Water Wars. Then get into your movie groups and respond to following prompts:

1. How would you describe the rhetoric, both visual and verbal, the movie uses? What is the intended effect? How successful is it?

2. Briefly describe one solution the film makers (or authors of the written text) propose to solve the water crisis? How effective is the solution? What further problems might the solution they proscribe cause?
