This time, the famous photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand is looking at one of the major challenges to human survival: WATER. 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.
A Thirsty World, filmed in some 20 countries, 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.
And through this documentary you will discover the shear magnitude of amount of water only one person uses daily; not to mention how much it takes to make products. Your view of this simple yet vanishing resource of fresh water will drastically change.
Take a few minutes to view the embedded trailer. The cinematography is quite beautiful. This is a go-see documentary, guys and gals.
