Documentarist and SALT are organizing a special film screening for World Environment Day, Tuesday June 5. Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s documentary film La soif du monde [A thirsty world] is presented in the scope of the exhibition Modern Essays 5: Graft.

Directed by Thierry Piantanida and Baptiste Rouget-Luchaire the film proposes a journey around the world. The famous photographer is looking at one of the major challenges to human survival: WATER. Today, against a backdrop of sharply increasing demand, significant growth of the world population and the impact of an increasingly unsettled climate, water has become one of the most precious natural resources of our planet.

Faithful to Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s reputation, La soif du monde, 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 gives us the opportunity to discover the most beautiful landscapes on our planet, the lakes, rivers and wetlands formed by water.
