De wolkenmelkers

Short documentary, 1999, 25 min.

The Atacama Desert along the coast of Chile and Peru is the driest spot on earth. It is difficult to survive in this area, also in the fishing village of Chungungo. Chilean geographers started an investigation of the possibility of solving the water shortage with mist water. In the meantime, an experiment has been replaced by a concrete drinking-water project in which 72 nets catch enough mist water to guarantee each of the 450 inhabitants of the village 30 litres of drinking water a day.
