HUNGER IN A WORLD OF PLENTY
It is one of the more serious and complex problems of our time: Hunger. According to the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization), our world would have the resources to nourish 12 billion people. Yet worldwide, one billion people are suffering from chronic hunger. How is this possible? In HUNGER IN A WORLD OF PLENTY, David Syz, the former State Secretary for Economic Affairs, seeks answers to exactly this question and more. What influences do subsidies from the Western world have on hunger? What role do speculators in the stock exchanges play? How far does political responsibility in the international community and in each individual country go in order to fight hunger? And what does the African farmer's daily fight against hunger look like?
This film is a worldwide search for clues, a search for connections and solutions ... and the answers are not so far out of reach.
