Over the past 200,000 years humans have upset the balance of planet Earth – a balance established by nearly four billion years of evolution. Humanity has very little time left to reverse this trend and change its patterns of consumption.

Through visually stunning aerial-only footage from over fifty countries Yann Arthus–Bertrand shows a view most of humanity has never seen. He shares his sense of awe about the planet and his concern for its health. With this film Bertrand hopes to provide a stepping-stone to further the call to action to take care of life on this planet.

In this documentary, several environmental activists like Vandana Shiva, Maude Barlow, Medha Patkar, and Rajendra Singh explain why we are facing the biggest crisis of our times.

How did a handful of corporations steal our water? Water is the very essence of life, sustaining every being on the planet. 'FLOW' confronts the disturbing reality that our crucial resource is dwindling and greed just may be the cause.

Experts label water privatization the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st century. This documentary builds a case against the growing privatization of the world's dwindling fresh water supply, with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel.

Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis at both the global and human scale. The film also introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab, while asking the question "CAN ANYONE REALLY OWN WATER?"

Beyond identifying the problem FLOW also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions providing practical solutions to the water crisis and those developing new technologies which are fast becoming blueprints for a successful global and economic turnaround.

Forget the axis of evil; it’s the axis of oil. The Cold War was about ideology, the "War on Terror" is about globalization. The 21st century will be dominated by the fight for energy. It will be every country for itself and it’s going to get dirty. This film describes the geopolitical consequences of the dependency on fossil fuels. In the struggle for the last sources of fossil fuels countries all over the world are forced to take new political and moral decisions and enter into awkward alliances; rogue regimes are tolerated and befriended. With a special focus on the gas conflict between Georgia and Russia and the position of Saudi Arabia, this documentary sheds light on the inverse connection between rising oil prices and the establishment of free democracies. The film then moves on to take a look at the international markets for alternative energy.

 

If oil and gas are scarce and expensive in the future where will countries turn to keep their economy going and their population warm and happy?
