After HOME and the Earth from Above series, Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s 90’ documentary film A THIRSTY WORLD proposes another journey around the world.
This film reveals the mysterious and fascinating world of fresh water, thanks to spectacular aerial footage, and interviews filmed in more than 20 countries among which some are difficult to access and rarely filmed, such as South Sudan or Northern Congo.
Engaging individuals, whether internationally recognized or simple front-line players, light up the film with their energy and enthusiasm. Their goal is to guarantee decent living conditions for the 7 billion human beings living on the planet today and the 10 billion who will live on it tomorrow. Despite all the efforts made, over 4 000 children still die every day because of unhealthy water.
