It is set reach to reach an audience of 193 million subscribers worldwide and is available in 29 languages.
Filmed across five continents, the documentary paints an optimistic picture of how humanity is adapting to new challenges in water management.
The documentary makers met with pioneers and innovators who are addressing global water and sanitation challenges.
Executive producer and founder of Brave Blue World Foundation Paul O’Callaghan, who spearheaded the project, said: “I am beyond thrilled that Brave Blue World will be released worldwide.
“Raising awareness of the global water crisis to help fast-track potential solutions was our ambition when we set out on this journey two years ago. It is thanks to the support of the global water community, including those who have already hosted grassroots screenings, that we have reached this extraordinary milestone and are able to finally give water the profile it deserves.”
“It’s a great film. We all need to see it,” says Liam Neeson. “Every school and every college needs to see it. Every kid has heard of climate change; the film deeply connects with this. It makes water local – something so many of us take for granted.”
Brave Blue World was produced by the Brave Blue World Foundation, in association with its production partners The Water Environment Federation (WEF), SUEZ Water Technologies & Solutions, DuPont Water Solutions, Xylem, L’Oreal, Aqualia and the Dutch Water Alliance.
