Today, against a backdrop of sharply increasing demand, growth in the world population and the growing impact of an unsettled climate, water has become one of the most precious natural resources of our planet.
Green Initiatives’ 64th documentary film screening, A THIRSTY WORLD by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, reveals the mysterious and fascinating world of fresh water through spectacular aerial images shot in regions that are difficult to reach and rarely filmed, like Southern Sudan or Northern Congo. It also lets us discover the most beautiful landscapes on our planet, the lakes, rivers and wetlands created by water.
- Film screening will be followed by a short discussion.
- There will be an entrance fee of ¥50 for all registered guests, that includes snacks, juice and beer.
- ¥70 for non-registered guests. ¥20 for students and interns, with PRIOR REGISTRATION and student card.
- Light snacks and refreshments will provided to all attendees.
A THIRSTY WORLD attempts to bring together Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s trademark aerial view of the world with the harsh, everyday reality of all those people who are deprived of water and may even die for lack of it, the people engaged in the daily struggle to find water, use it more intelligently, purify it, or, better still, stop polluting it. Reportages filmed in Europe, Africa, Asia and America invite comments from those people. Engaging personalities, internationally recognized or simple front-line players, illuminate the film with their energy, their imagination and their enthusiasm.
Because access to clean drinking water is more than ever the big challenge of tomorrow!
