A Thirsty World is the latest film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, master cinematographer and dedicated reporter of environmental issues whose previous projects include the incredible Earth from the Air. Arthus-Bertrand highlights the fragile, precarious nature of the world's water crisis from above.

Shot from surreal, astonishing heights, the film pans the earth from the Congo basin to the Cambodian deltas, plunging down to meet the campaigners, entrepreneurs and women defending fresh water sources on the front line. A Thirsty World is a beautiful, urgent call for everyday action to protect our most vital resource. Watch the trailer here:
