Lords of Water

by Jérôme Fritel Documentary  France 2019 52'

After the gold and the oil rush, comes the run for water. Increasing demographic pressure and agricultural  expansion, plus climate change are pushing the world to a point of no return. In this scenario, the demand for water risks becoming an explosive issue: it is estimated that by 2050 one out of four people will be living in a country hit by recurrent drought. Financial giants are investing billions of dollars in this sector in a battle to gain a monopoly on water supplies. The battle will be fought on the economic, ideological, political and environmental fronts, and decide the fate of the world’s populations.
