The Dream of Water will expose the political and social problems related to water resources.
In the documentary, expert voices from personalities such as William Cosgrove, President of the World Water Council, Mikhail Gorbachev: President of Green Cross International, Jean-Michel Cousteau, President of Ocean Futures Society and Rita Levi-Montalcini, winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine, will contribute their ideas for solutions to avoid the conflicts that arise in the wake of water division. In parallel, boys and girls from different parts of the world will speak in first person about the water problems that they confront daily.
In Benin, Crepin will explain to us how the pollution of his lake is reducing the number of fish. In Holland, Muriel will tell us how she is forced to evacuate her home because of the need to reinforce the dyke that protects her house from the sea. Nandini, in India, will detail for us her daily odyssey just to be able to provide water for her family. On the Gaza Strip, Isam and Anath will explain how the distribution of potable water mounts the tension in one of the most unstable regions of the world.
And in the desert of Atacama, in Chile, Julio will show us how they have decided to combat drought through imagination.
