Population Boom

Population Boom (Austria)

Synopsis:

A well-known nightmarish vision of the future: the Earth’s population reaches seven billion. Dwindling resources, mountains of toxic waste, hunger and climate change - the results of overpopulation? Who says that the world’s overpopulated? Curious documentary filmmaker Werner Boote travels the globe and examines a stubborn view of the world that has existed for decades. But he sees a completely different question: who or what is driving this catastrophic vision?
