Synopsis
In 2000, at the turn of the Millennium, 191 governments made a commitment to cut world poverty in half by 2015. They defined 8 goals, including eradicating hunger, promoting gender equality and guaranteeing universal education. Eight filmmakers were invited to share their vision of these goals. Featuring an introduction by Catherine Deneuve, the compilation's eight films range from Jane Campion's Australian Outback-set story focusing on global warming and extreme drought to Gus Van Sant's resonant use of skateboarders to illustrate the issue of infant mortality. This exciting and unique endeavor will provoke thought and even action on the global problems that face all humans.
