12.12.21. a nice date for the APPEAR film breakfast as part of the cooperation with 'this human world', the international film festival of human rights, which is taking place for the fifth time this year.
The film  Living Water will be shown followed by a discussion with an expert, the director and the audience.

Wadi Rum, the "Valley of the Moon" in Jordan, is a desert landscape that is known as a location for Hollywood films and adventurous tourist attractions. Few people know that in the inhospitable environment there are water sources under the sand, but a complex water system makes it very expensive to use and the "blue gold" is needed by many. This film takes a calm but deep look at an essential and global problem: the economization of the precious resource water. The economic, political and cultural conflicts over the last abundant source of drinking water in the region become visible. Pollution and scarcity are further consequences of exploitation, as is man-made global warming. Can this cycle be broken?
