A simple idea can make a big difference.
The idea is simple – bring saltwater into the desert –evaporate it by means of the sun and create freshwater, food and energy in desert areas, thus creating the potential to change the lives of millions. But it’s 50 degrees in the sun and it seems that every drop of fresh water requires a drop of sweat.
There Will Be Water is the story of the British engineer Bill Watts, Technology Manager of The Sahara Forest Project, taking part in the pursuit of the ambitious vision of greening desert areas whilst producing food, freshwater and clean energy at the same time. The new 59 minute documentary film, directed by Danish film maker Per Liebeck and produced by Copenhagen Film Company, is nominated for the Sheffield Doc/Fest “Environmental Jury Award”.
