Hot For Profit
Directed by Joan Planas
“35,000 men, women, and children die due to illnesses that can be prevented. Every 24 hours, 25,000 people die of hunger. 1,000 million live on less than 1 dollar per day. Wars and violence kill 900,000 people per year. Why?”
Hot For Profit is a documentary about poverty in the so-called Third and First Worlds. It analyses both societies from the perspectives of the NGOs, the media, the education, the politicians and the religion, and it challenges the UN eight objectives for the new millennium. Hot For Profit will make you think about your attitude and the potential for change that a single individual may have. The documentary was filmed in Nicaragua and Barcelona (Spain).
