A THIRSTY WORLD (LA SOIF DU MONDE) (France, 2012, 90 min)

Shown as part of the Rivers Program 

Washington, D.C. Premiere After Home and the “Earth from Above” series, Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s latest film focuses on one of the major challenges to human survival: water. Today, as the world’s population increases and the impact of climate change worsens, water has become one of our planet’s most precious natural resources. Filmed in 20 countries, A Thirsty World 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 allows us to discover the most beautiful landscapes on our planet, the lakes, rivers and wetlands created by water. Blending the filmmaker’s trademark aerial views of the world with the harsh, everyday reality of all the people who are deprived of water and may even die for lack of it, the film also spotlights the people engaged in the daily struggle to find water, purify it or bring it to those who need it. Directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Thierry Piantanida and Baptiste Rouget-Luchaire. Produced by Hope Production. 

Introduced by Catherine Albertini, Cultural Attaché, Embassy of France
