(Population Boom) Director: Werner Boote, A, 2013, English version, 87 min
How many is too many? And is it even the right question to ask? One thing is certain: there are more and more of us on this planet. 25 years ago there were five billion of us. Today, there are seven. The acclaimed Austrian director Werner Boote ('Plastic Planet') flies around the planet like a modern Socrates to examine the myths and facts about overpopulation, which is portrayed as one of today's greatest threats. Travel from Kenya's slums to the world's most densely populated place, Dhaka in Bangladesh, and to New York City.
The screening is held in partnership with the Austrian Cultural Forum Prague.
